Japan 2nd trip 6th day, Sep 22nd Morning, The Snow Crystals Museum - Asahikawa, Hokkaido

Japan's most beautiful snow crystals are observed in the Mt. Taisetsu mountain chain and so, located at the foot of Mt. Taisetsu, this museum offers an interesting impression of a snow corridor with illuminated ice walls. The pictures of snow crystals are particularly attractive considering it took more than 20-years to take the images.

If you are interested to know about a history of crystal.

The architecture of the museum shows little or no Japanese influence, but rather looks like a Austrian castle somehow mysteriously transported to northern Japan.
