Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival entrance
By day, the entrance to the festival almost looks like an igloo – but it’s in the evening that the park comes to life.
Koke no Domon (Moss Gates)
One of the most recognizable sights in the park, this moss-cloaked gulley was formed by flowing lava over years of volcanic eruptions. During the festival, brightly colored lights cast a vivid rainbow across its icy exterior, while inside, emerald hues create an eerie, fantastical vibe.
