As Kamakura is a coast town the weather is relatively warm, so it snows only once or twice a year.
The snow melts as soon as it falls, so the photographing snowscape of Kamakura is quite valuable.
On that day, it started snowing in the morning, so I headed to Kamakura, about 30 minutes from home.
There are only few visitors at Kamakura's ancient temples where usually with full of tourists, and many temples closed their gates much earlier than usual.
It became slightly heavy snow fall for the first snow of the season, thus I was able to photograph beautiful snow scene photos of Kamakura before I went back home.
