*Lake Shikotsu Hyoto Ice Festival
*A symbolic festival of Hokkaido being held for the 38th time.
The venue is held on the shores of Lake Shikotsu, where the temperature may drop well below minus 5 to 10 degrees Celsius, and sprinklers pump and spray the lake water to create frozen objects of many sizes. During the day, the objects glow a natural blue known as “Shikotsu Blue,” while at night, they are illuminated with various colorful lights, creating a fantastical ambience.
During the festival there are fireworks displays, Hyoto weddings, and many other exciting events held. Numerous vendors also can be found selling original “Hyoto Candy,” as well as warm drinks and food.
*Disembarkation at New Chitose Airport possible, so you can even join the tour on the last day of your visit to Hokkaido.
