Japanese Photographer Captures Mystical Shrines Covered in Snow

Located in Sakyo-ku, Kyoto, Kifune shrine is effortlessly iconic. It is one of the highest-ranked government supported shrines, and for a good reason. The shrine is surrounded by wildlife and nearby rivers. It also bears worship to Shinto spirits related to water. Overall, Kifune shrine is easily recognizable owing to its many red lanterns.

Recently, photographer Usadanu posted striking pictures of the shrine on Twitter. Usadanu’s photoshoot took place shortly after December 15th, the first snowfall in the area. As you can see, the shrine’s majestic facade is even more amazing when covered in snow.
