The Sapporo Snow Festival began in the 1950s when local middle and high school students exhibited six snow sculptures in the Odori Park. Today, it has become a major winter attraction for people from across the globe. For seven days in February, Sopporo is transformed into a magical spectacle of crystal-like ice and white snow. Located at the centre of the city, Odori Park serves as the main venue for the Sapporo Snow Festival. It has a space extending across one and a half kilometres, which is transformed into a snow museum. International Square becomes the stage for the International Snow Statue Contest. Some of the best works from across the globe can be seen during this event.
