Will you be fortunate enough to encounter this rare sparkling phenomenon?
This beautiful phenomenon is created by moisture in the air that freezes in the sky and gently falls to the ground like dust. If you are lucky, you can witness this phenomenal natural occurrence, but the conditions must be clear and still and the temperature must be below -15 degrees C, severely cold! Asahikawa and Furano are the most common places in Hokkaido to witness this natural diamond dust event. This is because of the drastic change in temperature between day and night. The Ice Pavilion in Kamikawa Town has a facility that makes artificial diamond dust and Kawayu Onsen in Teshikaga Town holds an artificial diamond dust event which includes an opportunity to make your own diamond dust.
