Kyoto Snow, Japan

Photograph by Takahiro Bessho, National Geographic Your Shot

Powdered sugar-like snow frosts a bamboo forest in the Arashiyama district of Kyoto, Japan. Though the city, in the central part of Honshu Island, gets snow a few times a year, it rarely sticks around long enough to create these kinds of scenes.
