Thick ice coats the surface of mountain streams. For many Japanese people, this is a sign that the coldest time of year has come. The news often reports record cold temperatures at this time of year as well. Even so, the daylight hours are gradually getting longer. The footsteps of spring are not far away. Now all there is left to do is wait for it to get warm.
