Kinkakuji, Ginkakuji, and Rock garden all are with snow

Kyokochi pond is frozen

Real wabi and sabi world
Ginshadan is under the snow

A strong cold air mass came to Japan from Jan. 24, and snow piled up for the first time in a while in Kyoto. Kinkaku covered with snow was so beautiful and Ginkaku covered with snow was more beautiful. On the other hand, the Rock Garden in Ryoanji was a bit disappointing.

Beautiful Rock Garden but a bit disappointing
