Shikotsu Ice Festival Tours

Experience the magic of ice and light this winter during a guided tour of the Shikotsu Ice Festival, a celebration of winter wonder set against the picturesque backdrop of Lake Shikotsu in Hokkaido, Japan.

As the temperature drops and Lake Shikotsu freezes over, skilled artisans carve and sculpt massive blocks of ice into intricate and breathtaking sculptures resembling a small “village of ice and light.”

The festival is a multisensory experience. As the sun sets, the real magic begins. The ice sculptures are brilliantly illuminated, casting a soft and ethereal glow across the frozen landscape. The play of light and ice creates a dreamlike atmosphere, perfect for romantic strolls.

Your guide is a professional photographer and will capture the unique scenery as well as memorable photos of you and your loved ones.
