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!
