Photo Journal: Festival on ice

Ice sculptures are lit up on Jan. 25, 2018, a day before the official opening of the Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival, in Chitose, Hokkaido. About 30 works made with sprayed lake water were bathed in red, yellow and blue lights, creating an otherworldly scene. The festival will run until Feb. 18, and the sculptures will be illuminated daily from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. A variety of events such as fireworks, ice cutting games and a wedding ceremony on ice are also planned.
