Welcome to the 33rd National Treasure Matsumoto Castle Ice Sculpture Festival.
Our main event is the National Ice-Carving Competition and once again this year it will be held in two parts: The Championship and a Pre-event. Many artists gather from across Japan and abroad to participate, and working through the night, they create gorgeous ice sculptures in the foreground of Matsumoto Castle. The climax comes at the brink of dawn when the finished masterpieces are illuminated. Sure it's cold, but Matsumoto's chilly winters make this amazing event possible. We look forward to seeing you there.
