2011/02/09 - Sapporo Snow Festival 2011 - by night
After an initial visit to the 62nd Sapporo Snow Festival on its opening day on February 7, 2011, we explored the festival further by seeing how the snow sculptures of Odori Park look during the evening illuminations. We also looked at a secondary festival site in Susukino, Sapporo's largest entertainment district, where a large section of road is closed and ice sculptures are on display.
Before seeing the evening illuminations, we first had a tour of the Sapporo Beer Museum. Before the museum's exit there is a drinking area where different types of Sapporo beer can be sampled. Afterwards we had dinner at one of the restaurants that offers all you can eat food and drinks.
