Unique Snowmen Appear On Twitter During Heavy Snow in Japan


Japan has recently seen some heavy snowfall, so the Twitter compilation site Togetter.com has made a collection of the coolest snowmen in Japan, as tweeted by netizens. There are eighteen in total, and not a conventional one among them.

Below, you can find an article about the snowmen, and beneath that, the original Togetter compilation. Which snowman is your favourite?

From ITmedia.cp.jp:

Gachapin and a Giant Squid, Unique Snowmen Appear during Heavy Snow in Tokyo Region

Some People Even Tried To Recreate Scenes From ‘Girls und Panzer’ With a Model Tank in the Snow.

On January 14 when heavy snow fell in the Tokyo region, this had various influences, such as disrupting public transportation, and so on. But amidst all that, people who found enjoyment in the snow from the unique snowmen who appeared here and there have been posting online.

A netizen called Gachapin and friend Mukk made a snowman, there was a giant squid snow sculpture that was talked about because of an NHK special, as well as the snowman family from Animal Crossing, all posted on Twitter. I compiled these various creations on Togetter.

There were even people who had tried to recreate episodes 8 and 9 of the anime Girls und Panzer, putting a model of a tank in the snow and taking photographs of it. Photographs of this are compiled on Togetter under the title ‘The Snow Piled Up “Against Pravda!”‘

And then, at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, children played inside the school grounds, and even people skiing appeared; you could even see some making a Landform map of the Tokyo Institute of Technology as a joke.

Unique Snowmen That Appeared in the Heavy Snow


I made a snowman yesterday! Look, look ー (o≧∇≦)o http://t.co/JA009EVa


In Tokyo, a giant squid made of snow is on display. Those who would like to see the real thing, please search through Tokyo — it’s much easier than searching for a giant squid in the deep seas. How long will it be on display? Maybe until it melts, maybe until some brats destroy it. So come soon!


(via:YUKO_Kyuchan)Outside some apartments on the way from Nezu station to Tokyo University of the Arts, there was this snowman…http://t.co/cf3R9hQg


michiko99 :
For some reason people have been waiting for it, so I made a snowman this year too. There’s no reason why they should be snowmen anymore http://t.co/jw66HLYD


‘Joseph Joestar’ ‘Zudodododo’ ‘We’re trapped. Break out!’ ‘Everything’s white!’ ‘Diooooooooooo! The snow! Until it stops! We won’t stop ploughing!’ ‘So much snoooooooooow!’ From Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure episode 15, ‘Snow Ploughing’ http://t.co/D0hn3Ali


I made the coolest snowman ever!


(The colours are faded somewhat by the pitiful reality of a fully-grown adult having made a snowman alone outside until this time, and the fact that my nose won’t stop running, will someone please shoot me immediately)


I thought that I’d reached the age where it was no longer acceptable to make a normal snowman, so I made a girlfriend http://t.co/Q9kTsegz


And then I made a ‘tachikoma’ from ‘Ghost in the Shell’ [a famous manga]〜Late at night, alone ヽ(;▽;)ノI was a bit suspiciousヽ(;▽;)ノYippee☆Ψ(8(∴)8)Ψ http://t.co/fFkmBDvq

  • They even made snowmen more awesome than the rest of the world.

    • Pokochan

      Can you say the same thing in front of the great russian people?

      • besudesu

        Haha. Do we have any examples of Russian snowmen on russiaSLAM or elsewhere? I’m sure the Russians have also made some formidable snowmen…

      • I’m pretty sure in Soviet Russia, Snowmen make you !

  • I’m not surprised about the girlfriend one 😀

  • besudesu

    I wish I could make snowmen of this caliber. They look amazing.

    • hun

      I wish i could even see snow..

      • besudesu

        I know the feeling! Although I am actually seeing it right now, and I can tell you that the nostalgia of seeing everything blanketed in white is usurped somewhat by the fact that I can hardly walk on the pavement without falling over.

        • hun

          LOL you didnt make me feel any better AT ALL..

          • besudesu

            Oh…sorry about that! Hehe.

  • rollin wit 9’s

    the one with the legs is awesome. thats creativity at its finest. the ‘girlfriend’ and ‘joseph joestar’ have to be the most difficult tho. Those guys got nothing but time on their hands.

  • I like the totoro and rice ball ones!

  • EightNineBall

    Wow, these snowmen are beyond well done. Outstanding works of art. I like them all, Miffy, Totoro, the family, even the one that is poop lol. 🙂

    The one made in the image of the doll reminds me of a paper doll I received from a friend once.

    Nothing short of amazing.

  • tonkotsu

    this is great! 😀

  • Mika M

    aww how cute!!
    respect for the guy who made himself a snow girlfriend :3
