What to Expect

We will leave Sapporo Station at 1pm, and travel to Lake Shikotsu by charter bus. 

Here we’ll spend the afternoon at the ice festival there, enjoying the frozen sculptures, buildings and activities. As well as an ice slide and an ice rink, there are also many food stalls, view spots of the lake, and a large information centre about the area that we recommend checking out. 

Later in the afternoon, we’ll meet together for a light dinner, or coffee and snack, and there would be time here to visit the local hot spring if you wanted to add this to your day. 

In the evening, we’ll revisit the ice festival for the illuminations, and on the weekend, the fireworks activity.
