Ice Art Works That Are Lit up Are Particularly Beautiful -Chitose Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival-
February 4th, 2015
Chitose Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival (支笏湖氷濤まつり) is a snow event in Shikotsuko Onsen, Chitose city located in the southern part of Sapporo city and is held from late January to mid February. There are a resting place, stalls, a restroom in the site. Admission and a parking lot are free of charge.
There is a festival venue near Yamasen Iron Bridge. There were 15 ice art works when I visited. There are art works to go inside, an art work to climb, an art work to slip, and tourists can enjoy those in various ways. A lot of foreign tourists came, although the tourists can not understand with each language, they slid on an ice slide together while laughing, that left my impression. There is no national border in pleasure. In addition, my impression considerably changed between day time and night time. I like night time. It seemed to be lit up beautifully.
