Nestled within the snow-covered landscape, the bright red of Haruna Shrine invites the traveler across the gorge. Dedicated to the deities of fire and soil, this Shinto site attracted many pilgrims. Snow continues to fall from the black bokashi (color gradation) of the night sky, weighing down the pine boughs and cloaking the rocks and cliffs in a blanket of white. This design is considered one of the masterpiece designs of this series. Today, the former Kozuke Province belongs to Gunma Prefecture.
