Quite impressive. Several years ago, there was the Ruins of St. Paul (Macau), which was also quite detailed and featured projection mapping at night.

Outstanding! There's a big contest for this in Montreal every year, and the entries are quite impressive. I know this snow sculptor in my home town who made a wonderful Godzilla and airplane display in his yard. Creativity out of nature at its best.

LOVED the Yuki Matsuri when I visited Hokkaido. Sapporo is hands down my favorite big city in Japan
