Beautiful ice sculptures!

And what is inside the Namba Hips building? Shopping mall stores? Offices?

The ground floor is I think Pachinko parlor, and I heard there are also restaurant inside.. the urn shape at the front is actually a free-fall ride, its probably part of the amusement center ..

thanks for visiting guys.. well update later ..

The Ice Sculptors are pretty cool. Where were those taken?

Oh, as for the cosplayers, I didn't know who most of these characters were dressing up as, but the costumes look well-worked on.

Oh, and this one...

I like the girl kneeling and dressed as Misa. Everything is perfect, imo. She looks more like a "Misa" than the actress who played her in the movie.

The guy dressed up as Mikami looks really good too.
