Light and Sound Show Can Be Enjoyed -Tokachi Swan Festival Sairinka in Otofuke-
February 21st, 2016
Otofuke Tokachi Swan Festival Sairinka (十勝川白鳥まつり彩凛華) is a winter event held from 19:00 - 21:00 everyday from mid January to late February in Otofuke town located in the northeastern part of Obihiro city. It strated at Tokachigaoka park in 1992. The event might be cancelled due to bad weather. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
The main event is the Light and Sound Show with trigonal pyramid shaped objects. 305 trigonal pyramid shaped objects with 5.4 m in most length are build on the snow ground and it seems to be used 667 lights in total. I was excited because those lights are glittered colorfully mached with musics. Tourists can enjoy looking over a view from a viewing platform and on the snow ground freely.
Beside the Light and Sound Show, there are light Zoo after passing through a light tunnel, hot spring facilities such as a handbath and a footbath, an ice slide, too, and the tourists can enjoy eating and drinking at a cafe and a stall.
