  • Lake Shikaribetsu Kotan (ice glass workshop)

Highlight

Each year on the quiet banks of Lake Shikaribetsu is held a snow and ice event. The Kotan Ice Factory creates custom glasses out of blocks of ice using chisels. They also have a service where they will keep your custom glass chilled until evening. Then, starting at 8:00 PM, the ice bar, a structure of snow and ice, opens up -- here is the one place in the world where you can savor spirits in your very own glass made out of ice. The ice bar runs as a cafe during the day, so you could take tea in your glass, too!
