Every year, the company holds a well-known snow festival, attracting visitors from all over Japan and the world. This year, at the 66th annual festival, the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces’ 11th Brigade came together, with the help of bulldozers and scaffolding, to create a huge Star Wars-inspired snow sculpture, using 3,500 tons of snow. The sculpture measured 23 meters wide and 15 meters tall and depicted Darth Vader and his storm troopers.
