Winter has arrived in Japan bigtime this week.
NHK has posted an article with a video of Kinkaku-ji in Kyoto covered in snow.
Japan's ancient capital of Kyoto and its UNESCO World Heritage site temple, Kinkaku-ji, are covered in a blanket of snow.
The Kyoto meteorological observatory says snow began falling early on Wednesday and had reached 4 centimeters of accumulation by mid-morning.One of our tour stops last October was to Kinkaku-ji.
