Frozen Pond of Kinkaku-ji

A unique winter only view of the Golden Pavilion

In winter the pond around the popular tourist destination Kinkaku-ji sometimes freezes at sub-zero temperatures. Tourists and locals gather in numbers to enjoy the beauty and the scene is a photographers delight. Kids can be seen making small snow balls and hurling it towards the lake, which is evident in the photographs. It's a rare view; keep looking for news announcements and snowfall predictions in the Kyoto area to catch a glimpse of the frozen pond.

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 20 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
