''Snow Sakura'' is a [[VisualNovel visual novel]] by Digital Objet, company behind KanaLittleSister, telling the story of young [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Yuuji Tajibana]], who is forced to live with his uncle and Saki, his very [[GenkiGirl wild]] cousin, after his parents left to work in Hawaii. Trying to come to terms with his new live in this snowy and cold world, he comes across a very illustrious group of girls and his new "best friend" [[BromanticFoil Sumiyoshi]] and starts to find both happiness and love in this new place.

A basic Slice of Life visual novel, the game was published in 2003. It has been released in English by G-Collections in 2007 with the erotic scenes being uncensored.

!!Tropes:
* AccidentalKiss: Yuuji and [[spoiler:Saki]] in the Misaki route. [[spoiler:It was only partially accidental on Saki's part since she admitted to prolonging the kiss because she wanted to.]]
* ACupAngst: A good way to get your ass kicked by Saki is to tease her about her bust size; though oddly, she's no smaller than some of the other female characters. In fact, Misato and Kozue seem smaller, but aren't insecure about it. Perhaps this is why Saki gets teased about it while Misato and Kozue don't.
* ArrangedMarriage: [[spoiler:During Rei's route, her parents consider this method to keep her continuing the shrine's heritage.]]
* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:Misaki's ending.]]
* BatmanGambit: In Saki's route. [[spoiler:Yuuji's uncle and dad briefly team up in order to save Saki and Yuuji's love from school-enforced separation - by manipulating the circumstances of their relationship and playing on the guilt of the Vice Principal.]] It works.
* BerserkButton: [[ACupAngst Don't ever call Saki "titless"]].
* BigFancyHouse:
** Rei's temple.
** And Kozue's mansion. She has a home theater. IN HER BEDROOM.
* BookDumb: Saki and Sumiyoshi.
* BreakingTheFourthWall:
** Kozue reading your monologue and denying your thoughts of her being a lesbian. Yuuji has this ability as well.
** Sumiyoshi takes this UpToEleven during a rant on his part where he complains that as a BromanticFoil, he doesn't even get his own ending.
** Then Yuuji takes this UpToEleven when you suggest he should [[spoiler: smell Saki's panties]]. He resists that urge and comments on how he should stay away from YOU. You pervert. It also happens when you suggest he should [[spoiler:wear Saki's panties]], meaning FailureIsTheOnlyOption.
* BromanticFoil: Sumiyoshi. And he's none too pleased about it.
* ButtMonkey: Yuuji and Sumiyoshi both.
* CaptainErsatz: Kozue Hiyama comes off as an older [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Tomoyo Daidouji.]]
* CherryBlossoms: [[CaptainObvious Well, it's kind of in the title...]]
* ChristmasCake: Misato Souya.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Misaki. Probably why she's considered a CreatorsPet.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Takeaki is generally sane enough to be a good dad and respected member of the community. But what else do you call a guy who decides out of the blue that he's going to be an English gentleman for the day?
* ComedicSociopathy: Nobody seems to get what Yuuji has against his dad, even if they too see the videos he keeps sending Yuuji.
* ConfusingMultipleNegatives:
--> '''Yuuji:''' I am not at liberty to be free to deny the fact that such a thing may or may not be true.
* CoolBigSis: Rei.
* CrazyPrepared:
** Kozue has ''way'' too much time on her hands.
** Rei keeps a slipper in her uniform for no reason other than she may need it.
* DeadpanSnarker: Yuuji. Though, for all his muttering, he'll willingly join in the stupidity mambo now and then.
* TheDitz: Misaki, by her own admission, isn't very bright and is usually slow on the uptake in general. Her older sister Misato is even worse.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: The boys wind up getting thrown under the bus a lot more often than the girls do. Usually because it's Saki throwing them.
* FanDisservice:
** Three words: [[PunctuatedForEmphasis NAKED. UNCLE. TAKEAKI.]] He even ''shouts'' that. ''[[GratuitousEnglish IN ENGLISH.]]''
** Sharing the hot spring with Sumiyoshi might qualify, although he's shown as a [[BarbieDollAnatomy Ken doll]].
* FiveManBand
** TheLeader: Yuuji
** TheLancer: Sumiyoshi
** TheBigGuy: Saki
** TheSmartGuy: Rei
** TheChick: Misaki
** TheSixthRanger: Kozue
* GiantEnemyCrab: A crab being cooked for dinner turns out to be a formidable foe, taking down Misaki and Misato and drawing with Sumiyoshi.
* GratuitousEnglish: Both played straight and parodied with the English teacher forcing his students to talk in a completely fake accent.
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: [[ClingyJealousGirl Misaki's]] route]] becomes increasingly unpleasant to watch as she seems more and more determined to keep the [[PlayerCharacter PC]] to herself, even at the expense of alienating [[TrueCompanions her oldest friends]]. It's probably the reason why most of the game's fandom [[CreatorsPet dislike her]]. Arguably, this reduces the quality of her route (despite being the [[VisualNovel Visual Novel]]'s cover girl).
* HotBlooded: Uncle Takeaki. If you're lucky, he may quiet down for a few seconds to dispense valuable advice, then go straight back to being emphatically manly.
* HotForStudent: Misato-sensei, if you go for her route.
* HotSpringsEpisode: Quite a few, since both Yuuji's former-inn house and Rei's house have them.
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: Misaki and Kozue will give Yuuji one of these ultimatums in the other's routes.
* InformedFlaw: Saki is ''not'' flat-chested.
* InsultToRocks: After talking to the vice prinicpal, Takeaki tells Yuuji that he's insulting snakes by comparing them to the vice principal.
* JerkAss:
** Yuuji's dad. Saki's [[ComedicSociopathy rambunctiousness]] can get out of hand as well.
** [[TruthInTelevision The Vice Principal is more concerned about the school's image than his students' happiness, even if it means breaking up]] [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption (or at least attempting to)]] [[TruthInTelevision a couple that is in love.]]
* KissingCousins: Saki's route.
* LampshadeHanging: "This isn't one of this dating simulator games, you know?"
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: While watching a movie he starred in, Yuuji finds hearing his voice quite weird. ''So does the player'' - this is the only time his lines are actually voiced.
* LovableSexManiac: Sumiyoshi.
--> '''Sumiyoshi:''' (''abruptly'') "Totally uncensored nude big-breasted blonde girls rubbing sun oil on each other."
--> '''Yuuji:''' "You know, sometimes I wonder why I even hang out with you."
* LoveDodecahedron
* LoveTriangle:
** Between Misaki, Yuuji, and Kozue in Kozue's route.
** A short one between Misaki, Yuuji, and Saki in Misaki's route.
* LuckBasedMission: Rei's Mahjong quiz is one if you don't have knowledge of Mahjong or aren't using a guide.
* {{Mahjong}}: Rei ''loves'' Mahjong. Having some knowledge on the subject (or just a guide) is actually required to get her ending.
* ManChild: Misato Souya is pretty close, with generous helpings of TheDitz.
* {{Meganekko}}: Rei.
* MegatonPunch: Saki dispenses these liberally, especially to Sumiyoshi.
* NewTransferStudent: Yuuji.
* NoAccountingForTaste: The protagonist's parents are a pretty uncouth sort, and they don't seem to be paying so much attention to each other in Hawaii as to the sexy locals. But hey, maybe that's their kink.
* NoodleIncident:
** When everyone gets drunk, Yuuji has to fend them off. When ''Yuuji'' gets drunk . . . well, no one wants to tell him what he did.
** There's a later incident, too, when Mr. Kataoka goes to visit a bedridden [[ButtMonkey Sumiyoshi]]. The only sounds heard are Sumi's screaming and Kataoka's calls of "OH YES, OH YES, I'M COMING". [[NightmareFuel And then Sumiyoshi stopped going to class for a while.]]
* TheOjou: Kozue Hiyama.
* OperationBlank:
--> '''Kozue:''' "The name of the plan is "Force the Half-Hearted Lovers to go on a Date"."
--> '''Rei:''' "That's not a very creative name."
--> '''Kozue:''' "I don't care if you like the name or not."
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Yuuji, our main character.
* ParentalAbandonment: Played for laughs.
* PornStash: Yuuji has one, but Sumiyoshi treats his like a hobby. Saki teases them about it (and secretly keeps [[YaoiFangirl a collection of her own]]).
* RapeAsDrama:
** The first ero-scene between [[spoiler:Yuuji and Kozue]] comes uncomfortably close to this.
** Then the next H-scene takes the same event and turns it into BlackComedyRape when she goes to show him a video and instead accidentally puts in the one of them doing it.
* RunningGag:
** As long as Yuuji lives with Saki and Takeaki he's never going to wake up peacefully, unless the RuleOfFunny says it's time to turn the tables. And then he'll go back to waking up with elbow drops and practical jokes.
** Another running gag is Yuuji's dad's ability to predict exactly how his son reacts to his videos and making preemptive arrangements. This becomes a plot point in Saki's route.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: Kozue appears to be this at first, but that is partly due to her inferiority complex to her "LoveInterest".
* ShipTease: In Kozue's route, even [[{{Tsundere}} Saki]] has to admit Sumiyoshi said something impressive. [[LuminescentBlush While blushing furiously.]]
* ShoutOut:
** Ditzy teacher Misato-sensei lecturing in the [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh wrong classroom]], along with others. [[UnderStatement She also cannot drive.]]
** Takeaki wonders aloud if Yuuji goes to school with [[LightNovel/SisterPrincess twelve adoring sisters]], or has [[PleaseTeacher an alien teacher who always talks about priority]].
* SliceOfLife
* SmokingIsCool: Rei. At least, that's how it comes across to Yuuji. She herself begs to differ.
* SnowMeansLove: Seeing as the game plays in the snowy winter of Hokkaido, this comes logically.
* StalkingIsLove: Kozue goes to some pretty extreme measures to photograph or film Misaki (and Yuuji if he starts dating her).
* SweetDreamsFuel: This game is virtually to Digital Objet what TengenToppaGurrenLagann is to Gainax.
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: ''Every'' response Yuuji or one of his friends has about his father's tapes is predicted by Yuuji's father when he records them. He even knew [[spoiler:when ''Yuuji chose Saki over the other girls despite not having any possible way of knowing and having no hints.'']]
* TrueCompanions: The game's a bit unusual - instead of the love interests being, for the most part, strangers to one another, all the girls ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Sumiyoshi]]) are already pretty close-knit friends.
* {{Tsundere}}: Saki Tachibana.
* UnstoppableRage: Saki has this one after being filed as the ''Titless Twintail Monster'' and mocked relentlessly for it.
* VisualNovel
* [[{{WomenDrivers}} Women Drivers]]: Misato-sensei is not the best of drivers. Likely a side effect of being {{The Ditz}}. This exchange, late in Misaki's route:
--> '''Rei:''' (after stepping out of Misato-sensei's car) "We should have died three times there..."
--> '''Kozue:''' "No, four times..."
--> '''Yuuji:''' "I had no idea cars could go sideways like that..."
* WrestlerInAllOfUs:
** Saki uses quite an impressive amount of wrestling moves on our poor main character - the German Suplex along with her favourite, the Elbow Drop.
** It apparently runs in the family, as Saki's dad Takeaki says he fell in love with her mom "the very moment she locked me in her triangle chokehold."
