When I opened the window this morning, I noticed that some light snow had fallen. Meanwhile, my friend had stepped out for a walk.
He sent me a picture of Kyoto's iconic Kiyomizu Temple. In the weeks to come, it will be exquisitely covered in a layer of snow, but not yet.
Some white snow had accumulated on the autumn leaves that still remained and turned pink. It is a beautiful sight that can only be seen at this time of year.
Looking back at the photos we took here in August, the scene is barely recognizable.
Before the snow melted, I tried to take a few winter-themed photos of our products in a garden. They matched beautifully with the snowy landscape.
If you don't mind cold weather, do consider visiting us in Kyoto. It's a special time of year, and the city's winter scenes are quite charming—especially in the early morning! ♪
