So this last week my ship made a port call to Otaru, Japan for the snow festival in Sapporo. Basically we pulled into Otaru and had to take the train to get to the snow festival in Sapporo. Anyways...I thought I would share with you all the pictures I took while there...
Sapporo City streets...
Okay, so I saw this ice block and I thought the way it formed was really cool...so this is a close up picture of the ice block. Cool looking isn't it?
Alright, so they had this ski jump where these Japanese Snowboarders were jumping off of. It was pretty cool!
Orangutan and a Polar Bear.
The detail that these people put into these sculptures was amazing!
Alright so this is the whole sculpture...cool isn't it?
Alright, so the festival mostly consisted of "Snow Sculptures," but they had a few Ice Sculptures thrown into the mix. This one was the biggest, and the coolest.
Snow sculpture model of some building in Germany.
The first snow sculpture I saw at the festival.
Many of the buildings in Sapporo were surprisingly old fashioned. This is pretty uncommon in Japan...they are a very advanced culture, and often they tear down old buildings to put up the new...but this is one of the older buildings that I saw.
Alright...well that's all I'm going to post...I have a lot more...but if I were to post them all it would be way too much! I hope you all enjoyed the pics...
