1000: Ama-no-hashidate

This is one of the traditional "Three sights of Japan" (along with Matsushima and Miyajima, all coastal sites). A ribbon of old pine trees covers a natural sand spit formation that almost closes the mouth of the bay - the traditional belief is that it is best viewed upside down, with your head between your legs. Of course, you can do the puzzle whichever way up you prefer. This winter scene is not all grey: in the foreground bright pink ume (plum) blossoms poke out from under their covering of snow.
