Every year, during the cold winter months, snow monsters make their appearance
on the snow covered slopes of Japan’s northern prefectures.
But instead of running out of their way, tourists flock to these places to admire their natural beauty.
Every one of these juhyou monsters is uniquely shaped by Mother Nature,
who uses strong winds as her tools and thick layers of snow and ice as art mediums.
Juhyou translates as “frost-covered trees” and is a popular phenomenon
that takes place in many of Japan’s northern ski resorts
