The observations of snow crystals have been made using a stereoscopic microscope at Mizuho Station, Antarctica during March 1979 and January 1980. Hollow prisms were observed rather in excess together with different shapes of snow crystals. Crystallographic properties and growth conditions of hollow prisms are discussed in this paper.
