Yuki Daruma (Snowman) Festival
Approximately 3000 snowmen, handmade by the villagers in all shapes and sizes, line the streets of Shiramine and Kuwajima. In the evening, the insides of the snowman are illuminated with candles creating a magical atmosphere. Despite the cold this is a truly heartwarming experience, and is certainly a festival not to be missed. Yuki Daruma (Snowman) Festival
