The 2nd Asian Winter Games were held from March 9 to March 14, 1990 in Sapporo, Hokkaidō, Japan.[1] India was originally scheduled to host the second edition of the games, but due to technical and financial difficulties it gave up its hosting rights to Japan in 1989.[2] The 2nd Winter Asiad saw three NOCs participating in the games for the first time: Chinese Taipei, Iran and the Philippines.[3]


Events from only six sports were held in the Second Winter Asiad. Figure skating was temporarily out due to conflict with the 1990 World Figure Skating Championships, while Large-hill (90m) Ski Jumping was again a demonstration sport.
