Winter in Hiroshima: A season of all seasons

I've been wanting for a long time to snap some snowy pictures around my neighborhood. But it doesn't snow that much in Hiroshima, and when it does it doesn't often accumulate. This afternoon, though, I peeked out the window to see I'd finally gotten my wish, on the last day of the year.

Winter's a bit funny in Hiroshima. It's not like the period of drab, gray gloom that overtakes Ohio. There are still streaks of life under that thin layer of snow. Kinda makes you wonder, what season is it really anyway?

Some shots from my neighborhood:
