Winter events and recommended ski packages

59th Sapporo Snow Festival
The Sapporo Snow Festival is an event not to be missed. One of Japan's largest winter events is attracting a growing number of visitors from Japan and abroad. Over two million people came to the annual event last year to see the hundreds of beautiful snow statues and ice sculptures which lined Odori Park, the main street in Susukino and Satorando. The festival takes place in early February for 7 days from February 5th to 11th.
Though flights to Sapporo will still be available, finding a hotel room will be the most difficult task. Most air + hotel package plan will be sold out by New Year or even X'mas, leaving only very little choice of hotel for those who start looking at them in January.
