Just got back from my one night trip to Yokote where they were holding the annual Kamakura and Bonden festival. The weather was sunny and warm, although this was snow country.
I have many photos to show of the festival, some at night and a lot more from during the day. I will probably be able to get some of those up tomorrow in between meetings.
For the moment, hope you enjoy the scenery here from the local train which I caught from Yokote to Oomagari （大曲） where I got back on the Shinkansen for Tokyo. One way the trip took 4 hours, so it was lucky I could sleep in the train a bit.
Does the snow look a lonely scene to you or a warm one?
Nice pic 😉
I miss the snow.. it been a long time since the last time I played on snow T_T …
Looks really great to be in Iceland!
Are you fluent in the local language?
Waiting impatiently for the rest of the optical loot! ^^
