When A Snow Falls On A Black Japanese Castle…

Record-breaking cold spell had hit the western part of Japan on January 26, 2016. Due to subzero temperature, Kyushu region (where snowfall is extremely rare) had experienced heavy snow.

What does it mean? It means a rare snow-covered scenery throughout famous tourist spots in Kyushu. Twitter users have been posting photos, and they are like works of art - simply beautiful.

People who were in the Kyushu region on this day are really lucky, because this might not happen again for many years to come.
