About “World Championship Snowball Fight |Koide”

Yukigassen (or Snowball Fighting) is a popular winter sport in Japan. 2 teams face off across a small court with just a few barriers for cover and try to eliminate all members of the opposite team or capture their flag. It is fast-pased and fun, either to play or watch. Every year in February Koide town in Snow Country hosts one of the biggest events in the country. About 200 teams battle it out to become World Champion.
