It is really worth it, do not miss it. It is one of the big attractions that Japan has to offer, along with the Hanami and (the less internationally famous) foliage. Artists from different part of the world gather here to build spectacular snow sculptures which are then lit at night.

first time went to the snow festival, eye opening with all the sculpture. The enviornment and feel is different in day compare to night where all the lights and music effect on the sculpture. And also all the food kiosk you can find in the festival. It a must you need to attend.
