What is the Sapporo Snow Festival – and why do so many foreign guests rush to make hotel reservations?

The Sapporo Snow Festival is a major Japanese winter festival in Hokkaido and in the country, which started taking place in 1950.
In 2019 some 2.73 million people attended, the largest since 1993 (when the event first appeared as we know it today).
A huge variety of snow and ice sculptures are constructed in Odori Park, at Sapporo's city center. In recent years, sound and light effects have been added, making the Japanese snow festival experience even more attractive, and skating rinks and outdoor food stands have been arranged so that they can be enjoyed all day at the venue.
The upcoming 2022 Sapporo Snow Festival will be held as an online event to help prevent the infectious spread of the new coronavirus.
