You can buy drinks at an ice bar, take a warm bath in an onsen, or enjoy the other attractions offered in the village. Afterwards, you will enjoy dinner prepared by a mobile cafe while relaxing in the warmth of Swedish fire torches.

If you’re feeling cold, you can warm yourself up in a hot spring bath built inside the ice village.

After a fun time in the ice and snow, you will visit Farm Bell Veggy, a mobile cafe in Shikaoi Town. You can enjoy a warm dinner of oden, a popular Japanese winter dish. made with locally sourced ingredients. You can relax inside a tent while gazing at the winter scenery, surrounded by the warmth of Swedish fire torches.
