    Hello. I don't know Ice Festival will be held or not.
    But you can see some photos about these events.
    (both sites are written in Japanese....)

    [1] Nikko Yumoto Onsen Snow Festival
    Fridays and Saturdays in February from 5:30pm
    80 minute bus drive from Nikko station (both JR and Tobu)

    Hello,

    well, I got my answer this year.

    1. NIKKO ICE FESTIVAL (Nikko City) END OF JAN.- BEGINNING OF FEB.
    Incredible ice carvings are on display during this fantastic festival. These carvings are illuminated at night.

    *Not visited the Nikko festival

    2. Glowing Ice Lantern and Snow Dome
    Festival-27th January to 28February Place --Kuriyama-mura, Tochigi

    *Visited this one was worth it. The drive route was more beautiful than the place.
