Japan: Tateyama Snow Wall

The Tateyama Murodo Plain receives some of the heaviest snowfall in the world. The 500 meters long snow wall is formed each spring on either side of the highway after snow is cleared for the opening of the Alpha Route. The snow wall can reach a height of up to 20 meters. The walls are still 10 meters in height even in late June at the end of the season.
