Snow at Yasaka Shrine by Tomikichiro Tokuriki

 

Yasaka Shrine is central to Kyoto's geiko district, Gion.

 

It is the heart of the summer's Gion Matsuri.

 

A blue dragon is believed to dwell beneath the Main Hall, helping to protect the city.

 

This beautiful woodblock print is by the well-known Kyoto artist, Tomikichiro Tokuriki. The woodblock print captures the same lightness of a watercolour feel that is typical of so many of his scenes of his home city. It's the style of art that he called 'Kyoto shin-hanga'.

 

He has captured snow at Yasaka Shrine in Gion beautifully, contrasting the snowflakes with the striking vermilion gate.
