Snow Festivals in Tohoku, Japan

March 3, 2011

While Sapporo steals the headlines when it comes to snow festivals in Japan, the Tohoku region offers plenty of off the beaten track igloo adventure.

I’m just back from an assignment in Tohoku, taking in the snow festivals, doll festivals, sake breweries and UNESCO sights, as well as making the most of all that wonderful food. In short, a mixture of well-known and well-guarded Japanese traditions.
