The theme of the 2-chome site in Odori Park is a combination of cutting-edge technology and traditional Ainu culture. The snow sculpture feature is Golden Kamui, a popular manga which focuses on Ainu. The setting of this manga story is Hokkaido in the 19th century. It’s an adventure about people seeking a bounty of the gold, which the indigenous Ainu people of Hokkaido were fabled to have hidden. During the Sapporo Snow Festival, the Golden Kamui will be the medium for a spectacular show using augmented reality and projection mapping. Traditional Ainu dance will be on show, and music events will also be held. Check the timetable on the official brochure.
