Event dates

Back in the days before refrigerators were invented, people in the Nagaoka region used to pack snow into pyramid shapes and preserve them, then they sold them year round for people to use like a refrigerator. These snow pyramids were called yuki-shika.

The festival features over 100 snowmen, and in addition to making your own distinct snowman, you can see a giant yuki-shika re-creation, enjoy games in the snow, buy food and drinks, and watch the stage shows and fireworks. It’s an event full of activities for the whole family to enjoy!
