Another Snowman Guiness World Record Broken... this time in Japan

The new World Record in Japan is 1,585

Residents of a Japanese town built 1,585 in one hour at a high school field to set a Guinness World Record.

The Iiyama Snow Festival Planning Committee said the "1,500 Snowmen Challenge," which was designed to commemorate the planned March 14 opening of Iiyama Station on the Hokuriku Shinkansen Line, featured more than 500 people constructing a total 1,585 snowmen inside the 60-minute time limit imposed by Guinness World Records.
