Images from the Exhibit
Japan is blessed with a richly changing climate and four distinct seasons, each with its own feel and characteristic scenery. Best known are the cherry blossoms of spring, the fresh green leaves of summer, and the foliage of autumn.
These arrive with an onslaught of brilliant seasonal colors that transform familiar scenery.
Though it is a low season for tourism, wintertime in Kyoto comes with its own unique, austere beauty. Snow is especially prevalent in the northern parts of the city and in its surrounding mountains, and when it falls, it transforms these areas into winter wonderlands that look and feel entirely different from any other time of year. This exhibition features artworks depicting scenes of the ancient capital metamorphosed by blankets of white snow.
