Asahikawa Winter Festival, Hokkaido
The 2017 Winter Festival will be held from February 7th to 12th, 2017.
The Asahikawa Winter Festival (Fuyu Matsuri) is Hokkaido's second largest winter festival after Sapporo's Snow Festival. The festival takes place over a week in early February, about the same time as the Sapporo Snow Festival. Hence, it is possible for winter visitors to visit both festivals on the same trip as the two cities are only an 80 minute train ride apart from each other. official website ›› http://www.city.asahikawa.hokkaido.jp/awf/index.html
