UMEDA — Look out for an invasion of snowmen this winter in Umeda. It’s the fourth year in a row for the area’s snowman festival. Running from Nov 23–Dec 25, some 58 venues across Umeda will have snowmen of all shapes and sizes on display (though sadly, none made of real snow) to get you in the festive mood. Vote for your favourite and be enter into a lucky draw to win various prizes, try your hand at the snowman photo contest or track them all down and rack up stamps and points in the snowman stamp rally. The highlight of the event will be an enormous interactive lighting display at Grand Front Osaka from Dec 13–25 from 6–10pm daily.
