While people in the U.S. threw boiling water in the air to pass time during the first major winter storm of 2014, people in Tokyo displayed their creative side as the worst snowstorm in decades hit the Japanese capital and surrounding areas this week.

“As much as 27 cm (10.6 inches) of snow fell on Tokyo by late Saturday, the most in 45 years, Japan's Meteorological Agency said. Back streets in outlying neighborhoods remained choked with snow and frozen slush on Monday morning, forcing commuters in heavy boots to pick their way carefully to work,” Reuters reported.

Have a look at some of the best snow sculptures “made in Japan.” (No pun intended.)
