  • Was super hungry so I went to during the week. The first saw the video, Ukichiro Nakaya, research by a little difficult. Had a panel of various shapes of snow crystals. Corner make a pendant on the ice, children only, there were people from either location let even for adults. Experiment of supercooled water and diamond dust is so much fun. Had become a hexagon well with bubble wrap. Hopeless pictures, dust, somehow still did not work well. Invisible walls. Children more adult-friendly I thought was fun.

  • Building also exhibits the experience great. Architect Arata Isozaki, it's building is the hexagon building, from the entrance, I was pretty excited. Exhibition part of the exhibition on the snow and Nakatani teacher who wanted to see more slowly. Don't have enough time, I didn't see too much. Workshop, children and adults alike can enjoy, there are things you can experience their own, more interested in what is good. Overlooking Shibayama lagoon that at first glance, like the lake views from the attached Cafe, snow flower, tea and cakes to provide. It is also where you want to go.

  • Did not know have heard of Nakaya Ukichiro succeeded in making artificial snow for the first time in the world in the early Showa period, birthplace was in Kaga city. Located near the airport, stopped by. Inside the image of snow crystals, hexagonal-shaped buildings, it is "snow everywhere!". Other dining options include the exhibition of snow crystals and description as well as a snow Crystal and diamond dust to make experiments. We know that the poet wrote many essays, leaving the quote "snow is a letter sent from heaven," the doctor was.
