Shiga on a Snowy Sunday

February 27, 2008

Several weeks ago my friend Chuck borrowed a big van and six of us drove north of Kyoto into the snowy mountains of Shiga Prefecture to visit Chuck and Tomoko’s friends, Yoko and Muneo, who are both potters and recently moved into a one room cabin they built in the woods. The night before it had snowed heavily, and when we arrived everything was covered in a beautiful, pristine blanket of snow. We ate stew and apple pie, drank hot tea as we warmed ourselves around the wood burning stove, and, of course, we had wicked snowball fights.
