Tokamachi City is an area of heavy snowfall in the southern part of Niigata Prefecture, with around 2 to 3 meters of snow falling in winter.
The Tokamachi Snow Festival was born from the local populace’s idea of “befriending the snow and enjoying the snow,” and is held in mid February every year. There are many ways to enjoy the festival, with something for everyone, such as the many Snow Sculpture Art made by the citizens, or the warm hospitality to be enjoyed in the Festival Hiroba Plazas found all over the city.
