Hase in the Snow

Taking a bit of a break from Kamakura in Kana to post some photos of the snowstorm from Monday, January 22. It only snows a few times a year here — sometimes only once or twice, so to get this much snow was pretty exciting, especially for this Canuck.

While I didn’t manage to make it to other parts of town, I did manage to catch three different temples in the snow: Hasedera, Kosoku-ji, and Kotoku-in. The Daibutsu was serene as always, even wrapped up in flurries.

This is a shot from our January 1st snowfall. It didn’t last long, but it was fun to play around in. The temple at the top of the hill by the inn became our playground, with Kaede and Hisashi even having a bit of a snowball fight.
