Sounkyou Hyoubaku Matsuri in Kamikawa Town !
Now that Kazu is away to Bangkok or Phi Phi Island in Thailand, I jot down some articles and post it with photos.
This is Sounkyo Area where ice fall festival is held. It is extremely cold in this area, so the river water is used to make the ice statues and sculptures.
Just pumping up the water from Ishikari River and pouring water to the skeletons of the ice sculptures again and again leads to fantabulous art in the canyon.
Enough preparation for the cold weather is required to walk around the venue of the festival even if comfortable hot spring spas are in the hotels around this area.
