This year marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan. So this building was made in the festival.

  4. We have a snow sculpture festival here in Breckenridge, too. However, this one has many more and much bigger sculptures. Great photos, Minoru.

  5. 札幌の雪祭りは、一度見てみたいです。今年は雪が多くて、地元の方々は大変だったとおもいますが。
    どれも大きな作品ですのに細部まで表現されているのに感心します。
    札幌大通りの先に雪の山並みが見えるのが印象的です。

  8. Wow! Wow! Wow! I love all your photos very much. That Helsinki Cathedral took so much effort to build into a nice masterpiece. I love to see snow sculptures more than ice carvings and that prompted me to visit the Sapporo Snow Festival 2 years ago. I was told that Sapporo has the best snow sculptures in the world annually. Your post certainly brought me happy memories of Sapporo and Muroran. Thank you Saito-San.

  9. Minoru - welcome to Mosaic Monday! I am so grateful that you linked today so that our little group can enjoy these out-of-this-world snow sculptures. Creative, gigantic, perfection. I will never get to see them in person, so viewing them through your post is the next best thing! Enjoy your week ahead, and please join us again!

  15. When I saw that white cathedral photo it seemed familiar to me. How great that the Helsinki Cathedral is built to celebrate relations between us and Japan! Stunning photos and ice works all.

    2. I like it too. Being Finnish might have something to do with it.

  16. Wow, very impressive. If you hadn't said so, I wouldn't have thought the buildings were built of snow.
