Arts and Crafts Village

You can visit the `Hokkaido Arts and Crafts Village` which has three museums. My favourite was the snow museum which has a frozen room where you can view the ice. There is also a room which has documented many different snowflakes over a period of time – it is interesting to look at all the different patterns on the snow flakes. You can also watch many videos at the museum where it shows you winter wild-life and their habitats; it is very informative! The gift shop has many ice themed gifts and you will want to take them all home; ranging from postcards to candles to fine jewelry. There is a place that would be perfect for a marriage ceremony; the ceiling is painted with a detailed sky and the stage has a lovely white piano; the symmetry of the chairs are very intriguing. The entrance fee is around 1000 yen which is more than reasonable. The craft museum features hand woven art based on different photographs of scenery. You can buy very unique and colourful items from the gift shop; including clothes, bags, purses, accessories and many more things. I bought a snowman ornament with a hand woven hat and also a small bookmark.
