Winter scenes of Sonogi tea fields

Just a few days before Christmas, the weather in Higashisonogi turned cold and we were lucky to receive a dusting of snow on the tea fields. A week prior we had a warm spell reaching up to 20ºC but within the span of 2 days it dropped down to freezing point. Apparently it’s quite rare for the region to receive snow before the end of the year. The snow melted after two days but it still gave us these very picturesque snowy tea field views.
