These are shot at the same place in summer and winter. The water for washing hands is falling down all the year because it may be spring water.

How far is Kyoto from Tokyo? Is Tokyo getting snow too?

Thank you for the comments.
walter: The water does not freeze because the water is flowing all the year. Plus, it come from the earth and a little warmer than air temperature.
keropok:Unfortunately, we cannot drink because it is a spring water. We use it just for washing hand.
ming: It takes 2 hours from Tokyo to Kyoto by express, Shinkansen. Tokyo has little snow through the year. This temple is the outskirt of the middle of the Kyoto city and rather colder than the center of Kyoto.
