As I said in my previous post, I would wait for the next bout of snow and then get up early and take some pictures. Well, that’s what I did yesterday. There was another snow storm night before last that left a very nice powdering of snow on everything, so I grabbed my camera and went for a nice long walk.

I walked quite far along the north bank of the Hirose river. On the way back, I visited a Monju Bosatsu Do (文殊菩薩堂) temple on top of a hill as well as the large Hachiman shrine (八幡宮). After that, I circled down along the Hirose river and then returned via the usual route from Kawauchi campus.
