The production site of the snow sculptures for the Snow Festival may be a little hard to find, but you will hear the sound of heavy machinery. I plan to take videos every day when I go to work from now on.
To watch the Snow Festival, it's better to get off at Nishi 11-chome Station instead of Odori Station, and then head towards Odori from the TV Tower, and return to Nishi 11-chome. Odori Station is convenient, but it has many exits and tends to be crowded.
Once you return to Nishi 11-chome Station, if you walk south, you will reach the edge of the Susukino district. When you enter the Susukino district and head south, you will find many delicious restaurants, trendy bars, and clubs. Ramen and seafood dishes are particularly famous, so please give them a try.
At Maruyama Park, during winter, many people decorate trees with snow ornaments and make snow sculptures to play with. Even passing tourists were delighted and took pictures. There was also someone making interesting snow sculptures, so I recommend the Maruyama Park → Maruyama Zoo route.
