The architecture of Hokkaido snow by Jeremy Everett

During the month of January Hokkaido Japan is one of the snowiest places on earth. The architecture of snow is always very interesting to me, a temporary mass imposed on the existing social structure. In Hokkaido this mass is monumental, managed with extreme order and celebrated as a way of life. The trip was a combination of everything I love about Japan and everything I love about exploring the mountains on skis.
