About Sapporo Snow Festival

You can see many BIG snow statues and many beutiful ice art. Sapporo Snow Festival is the most famous winter festival in Japan.

The characteristic of our group

Map Is it enough for you only to 'see' them? In fact, the best amusement is 'making' them. How do you join.....? There are many groups who make snow statues. - Citizens, Enterprises, Army and so on. For foreigners, there is 'International Contest'. But it 's not so easy. And there are too high quality arts. Join us! Anybody have a chance to make a BIG snow statue in our group. Qualification is only 'youth'.


1. Ther is a few people who can speak international language in our group. I think It' s no problem only if you had smile and energy even though you would not speak Japanese.
2. It 's OK even though you wlould not stay Sapporo so mach days.
3. If you would join us, please let us know it, before you arrive our base.
