Asahikawa - 42th Annual Sounkyo Ice Waterfall Festival

This year Hokkaido welcomes the 42th annual “Sounkyo Ice Waterfall Festival”, held by Sounkyo Onsen , one and a half hour away from Asahikawa by car. The waterfall drops from the cliff and transforms into exceptionally beautiful icicles; with the rainbow lights illuminating the fascinating ice domes and tunnels created in their most natural form on the banks of Ishikari River, adding a mystical touch to the atmosphere.

There are drum and folk dance performances, and if you visit during the weekend, you will find yourself watching the winter firework show; with gorgeous fireworks lighting up the clear night sky, you can immerse yourself in the wonderful snow paradise.
