Shikaribetsu Ice Village Tour and Swedish Torch Dinner

This tour takes you to the Lake Shikaribetsu Kotan, a village made of ice that appears on the surface of the frozen lake only during winter. You can see the ice village in the twilight of dusk, with the igloos and ice houses lit up to create a serene, mystical atmosphere. 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 visit Tomaru Cafe in Shikaoi Town to enjoy a dinner made with local ingredients while relaxing in the warmth of Swedish fire torches. 

You can buy various alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks at a bar made of ice.

You can even try making your own drinking glass from a block of ice.

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, you can relax in the warmth of Swedish fire torches at Tomaru Cafe.

You’ll also enjoy a sumptuous dinner with dishes made from local Tokachi ingredients.
