If you are going to see the Sapporo Snow Festival in winter, I would recommend visiting Otaru, a port town on the Japan Sea side, in addition to Sapporo. At Otaru Port there are canals, brick warehouses, retro Western-style buildings and others. Every February, a winter festival named “Otaru Snow Light Path” is held and the canal glows with a beautiful lantern light. Although it is a small festival compared to Sapporo, the locals will welcome you wholeheartedly!
