The Upside Of Japan's Snow Storm? Wonderful Snow Sculptures

The Upside of Japan's Snow Storm? Wonderful Snow Sculptures.

This past weekend, Japan was hit with a snow storm. And, like in 2013, people took to the street and created some wonderful snow sculptures.

As The Japan Times reports, the heavy snow was the worst Tokyo has seen in 45 years . Over a thousand were injured during the storm, and unfortunately, it claimed 11 lives. Roads were closed and travel was also disrupted.

The only upside, I guess, is that some folks made some creative snow sculptures. Via Naver and IT Media, let's have a look!

    I was in Tokyo during the storm. It stopped us from doing anything but sitting in coffee shops watching it puke down - but, granted, some of the sculptures around the place were pretty amazing. And the photos taken at a shrine in Shinjuku are pretty special.
