Temples and Shrines

Described as "decorated with snow", nothing could enhance the scenes and buildings more beautifully than the fresh snow.

It may not always be kind to those who live in the areas of heavy snowfall, nevertheless the snow creates a fresh and pure atmosphere.

Sadao Kihara, a photographer devoted to Kyoto, presents these winter scenes by selecting ten of his recent photographs, following his "Ten Scenes of Autumn Colors".
