Heavy snowfall is upon the lands of Japan and the locals are making the most of it by turning snow into the sculptures of beloved characters from Studio Ghibli movies, Pokémon or even viral videos.

It's not uncommon to see amazing snow sculptures in Japan, but they're usually seen during the annual Sapporo Snow Festival, which draws thousands of spectators who get to pick their favorites out of thousands of sculptures. But this time the snow is so plentiful that everybody got to join in the fun.

Anpanman is a superhero with a head made of anpan (bread roll filled with bean jam). He is a very kind and selfless hero. He flies around to patrol the land to find anyone in need. If he finds anyone who is hungry, he can remove pieces of his head to feed to them, but he gets weaker the more pieces are given away. http://www.awgosh.com/anpanmanchara.html
