The Sapporo Snow Festival began in 1950 and since then, every year in February, this place changes into a fairy tale with marvelous ice statues, in all shapes and sizes, all around the city and the most beautiful art events and crafts organised by its organizers. 

In spite of the fact that snow festivals are held in other Japanese cities, Sapporo festival events are more attractive. Local middle and high school students exhibited six snow sculptures at Odori Park which has become a major wintertime spectacle in Sapporo attracting over 2 million visitors from all over Japan and abroad. 

Snow sculptures and ice sculptures large and small line Odori Park for around 1.5 km between 1-chome and 12-chome, and the statues are lit up at night.
