Ive seen Tv programs all about the Sapparo snow festival it looks absolutely fantastic, how they deisign, build, these huge constructions is beyond me ( its on my bucket list to go to) needles to say the amout of time and effort that goes into building them as well, although its down scalled this year I am glad it can be veiwed online, I am sure it will be back next year, bigger and better.

Wow, impressive. craftsmanship. It is shame nature insists such skill melts away.

Everyone should see it at least once. The artists model the snow with incredible skill, and the entire athmosphere is surreal.

What is of more interest to me than the snow festival itself is the role that men such as Mr. Clark played in Japan's evolution to a fascist state in the 1930s and 1940s. I would like to think that there is a cautionary tale in there for the rest of us, and that it was not inevitable that Japan would descend into fascism.
