The Coolest Festival in Japan

Today marks the start of the world-famous Yuki Matsuri Snow Festival in Japan.
Sapporo Snow Festival
The event sees Sapporo, a city located on the island of Hokkaido, transform into a surreal winter wonderland dominated by enormous ice and snow sculptures.
The works of frozen art are truly magnificent spectacles, ranging from larger-than-life animals to historical monuments to scenes from Japanese culture.
Sapporo Snow Sculpture
The festival attracts 2 million people each year, only 3% of whom are international visitors, though the sculptures are created by expert teams from around the world.
