The Tokamachi
Snow Festival

The Tokamachi Snow Festival is a spectacular showcase of the
culture of Tokamachi and the Snow Country. This festival, which has
a history dating back to 1950 as Japan’s first ever contemporary
snow festival, is packed with local character, tradition,
heart-warming hospitality, and pure-white magic.

Across the Snow Festival weekend, visitors can travel between areas
known as “hiroba” which house a collection of snow sculptures,
artistically crafted by both professional artists as well as local
children and families, snow-based games and attractions, and food
and drink – some of which is free! The festival’s climax is known as
the Snow Carnival, and takes place upon a giant stage crafted from
snow. It’s a breath-taking show complete with live music, a kimono
showcase, lights and fireworks.
