In February, a lot of winter festivals are held in Hokkaido, including the Sapporo Snow Festival. For this reason, there are so many people going to Hokkaido at this time. However, in February Hokkaido is very cold. If you plan to travel in February, please do not forget to take measures against cold. On this page, I will explain the weather of Hokkaido in February.
Weather in Hokkaido in February (overview)
The weather of Hokkaido is completely different from Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto etc. It is better to think that the temperature is about 10 degrees lower. In the western part of Hokkaido there are not as many as mountainous areas in Honshu but snow falls a lot. Clouds damp from the Sea of Japan will come and let the snow fall.
Although the area on the east side of Hokkaido has less snow than the west side, it is not unusual for the temperature to fall below freezing below 10 degrees. It is very cold, so please do not forget measures against cold.
Regarding measures, I wrote it at the beginning of the page below. If you do not mind, please take a look at that page. If you plan on going to see the winter festival such as the Sapporo Snow Festival, you will probably walk outdoors a lot. Since the frozen road surface is very slippery, I recommend you to put non-slip instruments on shoes in particular.
