The Sapporo Snow Festival is held during one week every February in Hokkaido's capital, Sapporo. This year, it was from February 5th to 12th.
The Snow Festival is one of Japan's most popular winter events and was started in 1950, when high school students built a few snow statues in Odori Park, Sapporo. It has since developed into a large, commercialized event, featuring spectacular snow and ice sculptures and attracting more than two million visitors from Japan and across the world.
