Kakunodate's Bukke Yashiki Dori, practically just the way it was during the Edo period.
This cityscape is a historic masterpiece with it's weeping cherry blossoms is spring, the deep fresh green in summer, brilliant colors in autumn and snow in the winter.

[12:00] Exploring Buke-Yashiki

Buke-Yashikidori, untouched cityscape.

The snow here is very beautiful this time of year.

Walk a short way and you see Buke-Yashiki lined up with souvenir shops and tea shops scattered in between.

Was really so cold I had Marukawa's flat udon noodles with amazake and konjac oden.
