With temperatures dipping to below zero degrees Celsius, Kyoto experienced its coldest days yet this past weekend. And while it snows occasionally in Japan’s most beautiful of cities, rarely does it stick. Locals and visitors were in for a spectacular treat this weekend, as the low temperatures allowed for a heavier snowfall that blanketed the city’s world famous monuments.
