2019 Japan Winter Festivals Calendar is mysterious not only because of its picture-perfect snowy landscapes, but also for hundreds of exciting winter festivals and events. Besides, the country itself is a great place to enjoy hot springs (onsen)r, and a list of winter outdoor activities during this time of the year. The Hokaido and Tohoku regions boast of having Japan’s most stunning snow festivals and winter illuminations. Although these two regions are said to be the prime winter holiday destinations, yet there are other renowned festivals to be experienced in other parts of Japan.
