My older sister in Japan sent me this picture😊🇯🇵
This view from upstairs of the temple I grew up with my family used to be very normal for me. Now I can see many beautiful Japanese culture and special things from this like lots of snows for 5 months, beautiful 雪囲い around trees and buildings, peaceful bamboo forest…
We had to remove lots of heavy snows before we go to school and after school, but I really loved to ski on the big rice field with hard snow in the beautiful early morning before I go to school or work.
Spring of Cherry blossom season is always my favorite, but I have learned most in the winter time in Japan and I feel I’m grateful I’m still learning lots of things during winter time in Bend for spring too😊
