Here's a funny conversation I had with Masumi and Kensuke.
Kensuke: In the middle of December there is a snow festival in Sapporo.
Ben: What do you do at the festival?
Kensuke: You build big people out of snow.
Ben: Do you use carrots for the nose?
Masumi: No because Japanese people don't have big noses.
I know my nose is big but is it really as big as a carrot! I went to the Sapporo snow festival website and indeed the snowmen have small noses!
