For everyone who can't get to see this festival - here we are.
I am NOT one of those Sapporo-ites who sniffs:" Snow Festival? Nah...only for tourists...".
I really love the fact that this is all happening in the park near home and right outside NHK Culture Center, where I teach Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If you were on holiday and this was happening in a city near your hotel, you would go and see it for sure - but somehow people who live here get all snooty about it.
