16th Otaru Snow Light Path Festival (小樽雪あかりの路)

I went to the 16th Otaru Snow Light Path Festival (小樽雪あかりの路) with my tour guests from Hawaii.

When we arrived at Otaru Canal (小樽運河), one of the main venues of the festival, it was not very dark, but we could enjoy the scenery to get darker and darker at the nightfall.

I love huge snow and ice sculpture at the Sapporo Snow Festival (さっぽろ雪まつり), of course, but I also love...............

cute and lovely snow objects that volunteer workers make like this↓

Candles in the objects are lit up every night by volunteer workers.

There are candles in each object!

Look at the pressed flowers on the ice candles!! How beautiful they are!

The objects are displayed along the canal, and we really enjoyed all of them..........

The darker it is, the more beautiful objects look!!!

Look at the face!!!
Although it was very cold (-15C), we enjoyed walking along the canal while taking pictures of unique objects!

The ice lanterns with maple leaves are one of my favorite art works here!! They look professional!!

Hokkaido remains me of Blakiston's fish owl↓, one of the most revered God for Ainu people, our indigenous people here.

How romantic the canal is!!

A lot of tourists took pictures with the heart-shaped object near Aasakusa Bridge (浅草橋).

Heart objects are scattered in the venue.....

I'll be back this festival next year!!

We had a wonderful time in Otaru.
The festival was held from Feb. 7th to 16th.
