After a rather warm Autumn, we’re now in Winter and snow has fallen over the city. If you happen to be in Kyoto, know that this is a rare treat! Nothing is more beautiful than some of the city temples or shrines covered with a white carpet. It usually doesn’t last.
We’re lucky to live not too far away from one of Kyoto main icon, the Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine. This was last year, but as soon as I saw the snow, I went there by bicycle. Very few people around, but a beautiful scenery of the shrine under snow. There is no season to visit Kyoto — each one is so unique, with so much to offer.
