Ueno Toshogu Shrine on the Snowy Friday Morning

I went to Ueno Toshogu Shrine on a snowy morning in order to take photos of winter peonies in the snow.
I got to the shrine around nine, but the peony garden in the shrine open at nine thirty.
Befor the garden open, I walked around the shrine, and I had a different impression to when I had ever visited there.
There were a few visitors in the shrine.
In the snow, structures and the approach of the shrine were far more beautiful and fantastic than I had anticipated.
