Sapporo snow festival was started by local junior high school students and high school students in 1950. This year, the 68th Sapporo snow festival is held. Every year, more than 2 million people come to this festival from all over the world. Flying drones are banned in the venues.This event will be held until 12th.
I went there yesterday. This year, the temperature is relatively warm compared with other years. Foreign visitors seem to increase more than before. The snow statue of President Trump has a reputation for the similarity. I hope that it wouldn’t be broken by anti-Trump people. Anyway, it was fun to see many snow statues and events.
When I was a child, I used to visit this festival. However, as I grow up, I became to visit this festival less than before, somehow. This time, I reminded the reason. The venue is so large that I felt cold during walking there and tired. That’s why there are some warm resting rooms in the venue. I didn’t want to stay with strangers in a small room, so I didn't go into the room. If you are a more extrovert person, I recommend going into the room.
