Miko (shrine maiden) shoveled the snow. It seemed that they had to continue shoveling…. Snow kept falling heavily…

As its name “Sakurayama” (hill of cherry blossoms), it is very popular as viewing cherry blossoms spot in Spring.
It might be the best time for cherry blossoms there now !

Takayama festival is held in October 9-10 in each year and one of the important intangible folk culture asset in Japan. I heard that every participants are excited.

After we got out of Sakurayama Hachimangu shrine, we went toward Kokubun-ji temple near the shrine. The scene was great, too.

    I like this scenery so much more than modern tall buildings.
