Kyoto Snow



Rare Heavy Snowfall Turns Kyoto into Winter Wonderland, and the Photos Look Absolutely Magical

Bored Panda  by​ Iveta Pete

Kyoto was the capital of Japan for over a millennium, and has the reputation as its most beautiful city. However, recent events have made the city bloom in a rare color. Kyoto has been experiencing the coldest days this winter with temperatures dropping below 0° Celsius (32° Fahrenheit) and it became a white wonderland.

The average January temperature in Kyoto is 5°C (41°F), so the rare occasion inspired people to document it using photographs. Being one of the biggest UNESCO World Heritage site in the world, a snow blanket-covered Kyoto has amazing sights to offer for the photographers. The Golden Pavillion, Geisha district of Gion, Arashiyama bamboo forest, and other places look peaceful in a really non-tradition kind of way. Here are some of the best images of a snowy Kyoto!
