This festival is also know as Sapporo Yuki Matsuri, and will take place next 6th of February. The statues are located in the Odori park, Satoland and the Susukino's main street.

It's said that this popular event was born in 1950, when 6 high school students built 6 snow statues in the Odori park. Then, in 1955, the Japanese military army will join the event building big statues and becoming in a really famous festival.

Don't you think these pictures are amazing? ^^
