The famous place for cherry blossoms turns into the snowy landscape that is fantastically beautiful in winter!
Located about close to Nanzenji temple in Kyoto is the abandoned railway track of Keage Incline. It is a popular and beautiful sightseeing spot for cherry blossoms that bloom as if covering over the railway track in spring, but it is not very known as a famous place where a beautiful snowy sightscape can be seen.
I asked this time about the points of shooting to Mr. Usadadanuki, who is shooting many of superb views in Kyoto by four seasons and has shot the photos of the snowy landscape of Keage Incline.

The snowy landscape in Kyoto is very rare as may not be seen even once a year.

What is the point when you shot this photo of the snowy Keage Incline?
The snowy landscape in Kyoto is very rare as may not be seen even once a year. Waited longing for snowing forecast of weather forecast, and finally I could shoot the photos. I shot the photo about 1AM of midnight. The point is to aim the accumulated snow during the night as the snow tends to be melted when the morning comes.
Living in Kansai area, Mr. Usadanuki goes for shooting often to Kyoto. There are many other wonderful photos uploaded onto his SNS than the photos I have introduced this time. Please check by all means them if you have an interest.
