The ‘Ice Festival’ in Harbin, China is one of the world’s three major winter festivals, along with the Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan and the winter festival in Quebec, Canada.

The Harbin Ice Festival, which is said to be the largest among winter festivals in terms of scale, resumed after three years of suspension with the Chinese government’s ‘With Corona’ policy.

Harbin was covered in pure white snow and ice.

There is a reason why such a minister is especially grateful.

It’s because it’s the first festival in three years.

If you hadn’t given up on ‘fighting’ against Corona and said ‘I’ll go with you’, it would have been hard to have this different experience this year too.

The taste of the festival comes at night.

More than 50,000 tons of ice alone were prepared for this spectacle, and twice as much snow was needed.

In particular, the ice was cut from the nearby Songhua River.

Thanks to the hard work of workers from dawn to midnight, such a wonderful playground was created in no time.

The most crowded is the 120m high Ferris wheel, which debuted this year.

Of course, the wounds of the long corona are still there.

More than anything, foreign guests who come to us are not as good as before.

As a result, the annual Ice Sculpture Festival and Ice Swimming Competition, which were spectacular every year, cannot be seen this year.

The festival runs until the end of next month.
