A famous festival of snow sculptures is held annually in Hokkaido Prefecture, northern Japan. We visit the site of a giant snow sculpture being created and talk to the team's supervisor, Mr. Morioka. As he knows just how cold it can be to work outside in Hokkaido during winter, he has a pub owner cook warm lunch for his team.
We also visit a family-run Somen noodles plant. Winter is the best time to make Somen, so it's very cold inside the factory. But the family has a frugal lunch to warm their bodies up.
