Taj Mahal in Japan Sapporo Snow Festival

Taj Mahal in Japan Sapporo Snow Festival

Every year in Sapporo (Hokkaido, north of Japan) in early February, for about 2 weeks, you can enjoy the Snow Festival (called “Yuki Matsuri” 雪祭り in japanese) where the city’s artists and youngsters gather to create sculptures made of snow. The creations range from mid-size ones (like 2 meters high) to huge ones (10-15 meters high) involving whole groups of people during the time for preparation. This year’s edition had some fine pieces of art such as the Taj Mahal (made by the Indian team), a Japanese castle, an aquarium scene and of course the huge statues of Trico and One Piece, major hits in recent TV anime history.


Watch this wonderful video at Hokkaido Snow Festival 2012 - Taj Mahal snow sculpture with live dancers from India - to commemorate 60 years of Japanese / Indian diplomatic relationships. (Just have some patience to listen to the Introduction of the video in Japanese then enjoy our own Bollywood song and dance!)
