The ice festival is held at Lake Shikotsu
hot springs in Shikotsu-Toya National Park.

Creation in ice
Frozen from clear hot springs to
dazzle on-lookers

Raw talents invoked
Unflinching sculptures glisten
in the morning mist

Had life of its own
Human forms prim and pristine
but slowly dying

For Chev's CARPE DIEM #833  -   Lake Shikotsu Ice Festival


  1. It takes quite the skill, but yeah, it won't last long in most cases

  2. I've seen people create them. How they do it is beyond me
