The Asahikawa Winter Festival is the second largest winter festival in Hokkaido. The first is Sapporo Snow Festival. This festival starts in early February, about the same time as the Sapporo Snow Festival. So it is possible to visit both festivals if you come to Hokkaido around this time. It’s roughly an 80 minute train ride between both cities.

Asahikawa usual has the largest snow sculpture, a stage for music and other performances and also fireworks.

In 1994, the Korean Fortress snow stage made into the book of Guinness World Records as the largest snow construction built.
