There are many superb winter view sites in Japan. In this article, I will introduce to you six of these places.


Sapporo Yuki Matsuri (Hokkaido)

“Sapporo Yuki Matsuri” is the festival of snow and ice. Many tourists visit Sapporo just to participate in this festival. The snow statues created in a precise manner are superb. It is definitely one of the special festivals in Japan that you should go to see.

Ginzan Onsen (Yamagata)

Ginzan Onsen town is located in Yamagata Prefecture. The winter view of this town makes visitors feel as if they have slipped back in time to the Edo Era. The view of the spa town from the “ginzan” (silver mine) has the taste of the Tasho Era and this view is the symbol view of the town. A special law was enacted to protect the streetscapes of the town.
