Sapporo Snow Festival 2002

In February, we went to the northern island of Hokkaido, to the city of Sapporo for the 53rd annual Yuki Matsuri (snow festival). Here are some of the sculptures we saw.

We were in Sapporo for a few days, and had a chance to do some sightseeing outside of the festival. For example, we had a "lovely view" from this chairlift ride up a mountain.

We also visited the Ishiya Chocolate Factory. Unfortunately, they didn't have any openings for taste-testers.
