Spring Snow at Maruyama, Kyoto.

This subtle psychedelic piece depicts three woman in traditional winter clothing, with geta on their feet, strolling through Maruyama Park during a snowy early evening.

Complete with a duck pond, some gurgling streams and some of the finest cherry trees in all of Kyoto, Maruyama-koen Park is a brilliant little park tucked up against the base of the Higashiyama Mountain, sandwiched between Yasaka-jinja Shrine to the south and Chion-in Temple to the north. If you’re in Kyoto during cherry blossom season, this is the place to come to see some serious hanami (cherry blossom viewing) parties.
