Sapporo Snow Festival Experience

Japan’s most amazing snow festival takes place every February in Sapporo and we’re flying there to bring you to the fun!
So — grab your down jackets and snow boots! It’s Hokkaido and Japan’s northern most capitol is cold.
The Sapporo Snow Festival is a must-see event for any visitor to Japan in February and this episode will highlight things you should know before going.

In this episode, John travels from Tokyo to Sapporo and spends a couple of days exploring the attractions at Odori Park and Susukino, Sapporo’s entertainment district. We feature Sapporo TVs Attack on Titan snow sculpture and light show as well as tour the Dragon Ball , Macau’s Ruins of St. Paul and The Hokkaido Shinkansen snow sculptures.
