It only snows in Kyoto a few times a year and it's even rarer for it to stick to the ground. So people in the Japanese city this past weekend were in for a real treat when a cold air mass hit the country, covering the entire region with a blanket of snow.
Here are some of those magical scenes that locals and travelers posted on Instagram and Twitter from Kyoto this weekend.
The five stories of the Yasaka Pagoda in the city's Higashiyama District were also totally transformed by snowfall.
But must adorably, these felines couldn't get enough of watching the falling snow from the warmth of the cat cafe they call home.
