Sapporo to Asahikawa in one day snow festival 2018/1/15 08:17
Hello

I am planning on being in Sapporo for this coming snow festival - do you think it is possible to travel to Asahikawa for the day to see the snow festival/sculptures there - I am unsure as to how much time I need to spend there after dark to see the festival, the size of the area that it is in and how far away from the train station- would I have enough time to get a train back to Sapporo - I am concerned if there would be train delays because of the snow at that time of year.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Could you clarify if you want to see the Sapporo and Asahikawa snow festival on the same day? Or is the question if you can station yourself in Sapporo and do a daytrip to Asahikawa. Sorry, for me your original question is not clear.

Thanks

I donft see a problem with doing Asahikawa as a day trip from Sapporo. The train takes about 1.5 hours (there are also some slower ones). So you could go in the morning and return after you saw the lights in the evening. It will get dark early, so even if you take a train back at 20:00 you still have some time to admire snow sculptures in the dark.

If you go to Asahikawa in winter look out for the Pinguin walk on the zoo. Should be cute.

Enjoy your trip to Japan!
