Due to yesterday’s warm temperature, February 8, 12 ice sculptures melted and they were destroyed by official for keeping visitor safe. This is very few happening for Sapporo Snow Festival to destroy objects during festival period. More, Star Wars Statue, this is one of the most popular snow statue this year, also melted in some top part of the statue which are the parts of the star-fighters and they were destroyed by official unfortunately. The temperature was 4 degrees higher than average year. This is unavoidable action for keeping visitors safe. It is really regrettable but still have many interesting thing such as several foods and souvenir at booths.
