What We Love:

Enter a fairytale world of sparkling ice and colourful lights set against the backdrop of Lake Shikotsu's magical snowscape. Admire the illuminated ice sculptures made from founts of lake water that transform into unique works of art as they freeze. Explore the labyrinth of icy tunnels and caves and discover the aquarium under the lake, a series of tunnels with frozen fish displayed in the walls! Kids can revel in the ice slides and even ride horses in the daytime. If you're visiting on a weekend or national holiday, you'll be able to enjoy the spectacular firework display along with waidako drum performances. For refreshment, show your ticket at Restaurant Memere and enjoy a free glass of sweet sake, green tea, or your choice of soft drink. Make sure to wrap up warm as you explore Hokkaido's ultimate winter wonderland!

Yet another fantastic experience with Klook, will continue booking


We loved the fireworks and threading through the ice was a cool experience


great for taking the kids, they had alot of fun going through the ice tunnels


Worth the trip - the transportation included was icing on the cake (no pun intended)
