67th Sapporo Snow Festival (Susukino)

To avoid too many photos in a single post, I’ll break it does to a post for each of the 3 festival sites in Sapporo. First up, the Susukino site, a few minutes walk from my accommodations.

I arrived someone around 7PM in the city and after leaving my things at the share house, I walked to ramen yokocho. This small alley is packed with, you guessed it, ramen restaurants! I chose the restaurant with Anthony Bourdaine’s photo and had myself a nice, hot Miso Ramen.

From here it was a short walk to the Susukino site. I was greeted by this crowd-pleasing ice sculpture from a sushi restaurant.

Apart from the sculptures, there were also activities such as getting to try this winter sport.

There were also Ice bars, karaoke sessions and slides for the kids.

Before going back to the share house, I passed by Odori Park to check out the night scene but I’ll post pictures of that later.
