The Carp Streamers Dance in The Snowstorm

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Kent Shiraishi

April in Hokkaido. It is a snowstorm today, too. "The carp streamer" is traditional culture in Japan. It seldom usually snows late in April. Therefore,probably, nobody in the world has ever seen this scene before. I seemed to be dancing in the snowstorm by the beautiful carp streamers. Kent Shiraishi

Location: Biei,Hokkaido in Japan.
