The team of 123 members spent a month replicating the Chukondo hall of Kofukuji temple in Nara out of 4,500 frozen pieces made from enough snow to fill the beds of 600 5-ton trucks. Measuring 22 meters in width and 21 meters in depth, the ice temple forms part of the Sapporo Snow Festival, a popular tourist draw.
