This month’s photo is of a snow-covered Amanohashidate, a famous land bridge in the northern part of Kyoto Prefecture. This natural formation is actually a sandbank that is home to around 8000 pine trees! Amanohashidate resembles a dragon soaring up to the heavens when viewed while upside-down. This view has earned it the nickname Hiryukan, which means “flying dragon”. When visiting, be sure to look through your legs to see the dragon for yourself!©Kyoto Prefecture/©JNTO
