Snow in Hokkaido, Japan
Photograph by Kent Shiraishi
In Hokkaido, it was an uncommon thing but it snowed in May of this year. A lot of tourists dislike it snowing in the spring. However, the tourists who visited "a blue pond" plainly enjoyed it. It is because they could see this beautiful snow scene. This place has a view that draws tourists from around the world. All are nature's tints.
