The Sapporo Snow Festival is one of Japan's largest winter events. Every winter, about two million people come to Sapporo to see a large number of splendid snow statues and ice sculptures which line Odori Park, the grounds at Community Dome Tsudome, and the main street in Susukino.
History of the Snowman enthusiast and illustrator, Chad Crowe, sent us these snowman images from the festival. (all photos courtesy of Chad Crowe)
