KYOTO LOOKS BEAUTIFUL COVERED IN SNOW

Kyoto is one of the most breathtaking places in the world — more so when it snows.

About a week ago, temperatures dropped to below zero degree celcius, causing the city to become blanketed in a layer of white. Lucky tourists were able to capture Kyoto’s iconic monuments looking absolutely magical, and they took to social media to share images of the snow-filled city.

Famous spots like Kiyomizu-dera and the Golden Pavilion were packed with excited visitors, and Kifune Shrine even opened its doors for a free event. Those who stopped by Arashiyama Bamboo Grove were also in for a spectacular treat, considering how magnificent it looked enveloped by a canopy of powdered fluff.
