Mar/13 - 14, 2020 Tsunan Snow Festival (Sky Lantern Launch)4.0
from 3/13 '20 to 3/14 '20
Tsunan Town in Niigata is known as one of the heaviest snowfall areas in Japan.
Tsunan Town holds the snow festival on middle-March each year, and there are two main events during this festival. One is "Snow Wave" which is the snowboard freestyle competition, and the other one is "Sky Lantern" where over 2,000 paper lanterns float in the night sky.
The sight of 2,000 beautiful sky lanterns flying up and down in the sky is simply breathtaking! You would feel like entering the magical world of the Disney movie Rapunzel.
As the finale of the festival, fireworks are launched into the snow night sky.
Besides the New Greenpia Tsunan Venue where Snow Wave and Sky Lantern are held, there is a Owarino Special Venue in the center of the city. At the Owarino Special Venue, you can enjoy the snow attractions, stage events, and food stalls serving local specialty.
