The Panorama bears are becoming something of a photo hotspot among locals and tourists alike, with Mt. Yotei an excellent backdrop to the iconic statues.
They are the creation of Matt Hill, a very talented Australian artist, who's fantastic woven metal work can also been seen at Aya Niseko.
If you're in Niseko, feel free to stop by any time, say hello and snap a selfie!
