I love the old farmhouses that are still left in the Iwakura section of Kyoto. But this one has a special place in my heart. In fact it's the only place that is in my portfolio four times, more than any other single place.
I think it's the combination of the rice fields and the mountain that just takes my breath away every time. When we had snow on New Year's morning, this was the place I went to first. You can see its other moods in different seasons by clicking on the tag thehouse.
