“THE SNOW COMIC” measures approximately 100 meters (about 328 feet) in width and 70 meters (about 230 feet) in height, and after it was completed, it was photographed from above via drone. Images of “THE SNOW COMIC” are being displayed in Shinagawa and Shinjuku in Tokyo and in Sapporo and Obihiro in Hokkaido. The ads feature a tag-line that translates to: “The footprints of the pair are engraved in the land of the north.”
