You know what we take for granted in Canada? Snow.
Be honest, when’s the last time you built a legit snowman–no, not one that’s made out of two semi-giant snowballs and missing all of the components of a proper Frosty–or even played in the fluffy white stuff? It’s been a while, right? We’ve become so anti-snow (understandably so) that we’ve forgotten how much fun it can be.
We think it’s time Canadians rekindle their love for all things snow. And we have an unlikely ally to look-up to for inspiration: The residents of Tokyo, Japan. Yes, you don’t usually associate snow with Tokyo–because it rarely snows there–but this past week the capital city received a rare six centimetres of snow. And, of course, the city’s talented residents took to the streets to create some magical and, um, unique snow sculptures. Take a look at some of them below and, hey, maybe they’ll inspire you:
