Let's step back a little from the topic and find out in more detail what snowflakes are. I must say that snowflake - This is such a substance, which is 95% air. That is why the speed of its fall is very low, which allows us to enjoy its beauty in the fall, and even photograph a snowflake. All snowflakes are hexagonal without exception. But the most important thing is not this, but the fact that not a single snowflake repeats another. Can you imagine what that means? To clarify the situation, we’ll announce that one cubic meter of snow contains approximately 350 million snowflakes. This is truly a miracle of nature, which is reflected in the Japanese Museum of Snowflakes.

Founder of the Snowflake Museum - Nakaya Ukichiro, a scientist whose name is and bears a museum. For a very long time, scientists could not photograph a snowflake, nor examine it under a microscope. Now, when the last word is left to science, you can make very high-quality photos. Therefore, in the museum of snowflakes you will find a huge number of photographs of snowflakes that will delight you. The exposition of the museum is very diverse. It is convenient to view exhibits by walking along a spiral staircase. The museum itself is located in snowy caves, which, for a short period of time, led to a beautiful view. The museum blows a little cool, but it should be so, because you are in the museum of snowflakes!
