"Asahikawa Winter Festival" will be held in Asahikawa-city.
The unique point of this event is the biggest snow building! They got the Guinness World Record in 1994. The buildings are made with different themes every year.
This year, the theme is Ultra-man, a Japanese animation hero in "Ultraman Ginga S". A projection mapping show will be shown at night as well. Huge snow statues harmonize with CG images really beautifully, powerful sounds and colorful light beams also make the show great! Don't miss it!
You can also experience making a huge snow slide which is 10 meters high and 100 meters long, and also making snowman. "Snow Sculpture World Competition" will be also held at the same place. This is an official world competition.
There are also some stalls, and the event is bustling with many people every year.
Please enjoy winter Hokkaido!
