Wish I was there. I hope we get a ton of snow in Tokyo. Perfect for a holiday.

"The only time Japan shows any beauty is when its under snow." And when the autumn leaves color the mountains or the cherry blossoms brighten our days! Enjoy every day as a gift.

Nice scene, but adjust white balance, pls!

beautiful photograph. Ignore the smug armchair critics.

This scene is much more beautiful in the spring or summer when the green leaves are out, or in autumn when the red, orange and yellow leaves are out, and you don't need to wear a coat, hat and gloves.

As has been mentioned, the white balance is a little off... it's a beautiful scene though!

Unless of course muted colours are what Ametanisan was after :-) Personally I think the blue cast works well with this image. Just my taste, I guess.

Well, you obviously don't live here because if you did, 1) you'd know that statement is not true and 2) that statement then would DEFINITELY not be true....

You figure it out.

"Smorkian at 02:20 PM JST - 11th February Nice scene, but adjust white balance, pls!"

"adjust the white balance"??? WTF???? Do you still take pictures with a Polaroid, or what? I suppose if it were taken in black and white you'd ask them to adjust the color? Just cuz you paid a whopping 7,000 yen for that P&S camera on your last visit to China, does NOT make you a photographer.

It's a beautiful pic.

CLEO- I echo that. Awesome shot !

Whats funny is, I was there this morning...and there were at least 20 people in that exact location taking that photo...and countless more photographers around there. Its a nice spot, I actually had to get out of their way while shooting a video there this morning..you can see a shot right across from it.

A lovely scene.

I have to agree that Osaka is the ugliest city I have every been to. There is beauty in Japan, but sometimes you have to dig a bit to find it.

That said, this IS a gorgeous picture.

Geez, dude, chill! I don't even know what the heck you are talking about, 7000 yen camera in China??? It's a color photo, most likely a digital color photo, and unless the photographer meant for a blue cast the white balance is off on the picture. Learn how to use a camera.

It's a nice looking photo. The composition is good. It's not meant to be "art for sale" quality although with a few tweaks in Photoshop it probably could be. What are you complaining about? It's a nice pic and it is pleasing to look at.

What a chill pill. In a good way. I'm shivering.

Lovely photo & the photographe picked the correct time of the year with snow on many parts. Makes one want to go back to it several times. Well I did to soak in the beauty a number of times.

Gorgeous photo. I really want to book a trip to see Osaka and Kyoto sometime.

The photo said it all; beauty, tranquilty and harmony of Japan!

The blue colour cast helps accentuate a sense of cold in my opinion, so works for me. It's a nice image.

Perfect. Made my day.
