The Snow in Black and White


Well, it snowed AGAIN in Tokyo this weekend! (Miracles DO happen!)

So naturally, I took this to mean that I can post even more snow photos here! But just to keep things from getting stale, I decided to post black and white photos so it wouldn't just be another snow post...it would be the black and white snow post! Ha.

I took most of these photos while walking through Shinjuku on my way to meet a friend in Shibuya. The view from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building was an ocean of white. How amazing is that? It's not a view we see too often in Tokyo. I also stopped by Shinjuku Gyoen and had a hard time resisting the urge to make snow angels. And you can see in one of the photos but the lake in the park had frozen over!

Don't you love how quiet it gets right after a snow fall? x

Here are some photos:

    1. Thank you, Ru! And you are absolutely correct. Leave it to you to notice! (Did you ever do a post on the 江戸六地蔵?)

  3. Kaori, these are beautiful photos. I like them all but the large tree in the first photo (I am a sucker for trees), the almost-like-a-checkboard panorama from above and the trees at the end of the snow field are my favorite.

    1. Massimo Marengo, thank you! I especially liked the first tree photo, too. It was so beautiful that day, I literally took over 50 photos of this tree alone. Snow is very special here, if you hadn't noticed ;-D
