Sapporo Snow Festival Part II

Friday, March 20, 2015

Hello again! Some more photos from the 66th Annual Sapporo Snow Festival. I love the realism in snow. They had snow artists from all over the world come and participate. Here are some more amazing sculptures. The scale is so hard to convey on this one, but it is about three stories tall

Rice harvest, one of my favorites

This is the snowy version of this Cathedral of Manila. source

The realism is shocking.

And then there are my favorite things I'll always remember, like this guy. I think he was representing wildlife preservation interest group, but I'm not sure since my language skills are not so refined.  He was a pretty great sport about posing for me!

And there's ice slides for the kids

The ice slides are sponsored by Cup Noodles

And this guy, I mean this in all seriousness, he is very dapper. I believe he is Sapporo's very own Ron Burgundy.

Hello Ann, The Cathedral is astounding. It is hard to understand how they can get so much detail in the snow/ice, without it crumbling. (The same goes for sand sculptures, which likewise can achieve remarkable realism.)

I suppose that now you'll be telling us that the clock actually worked!
