Snow scene in Poreč
Snow scene in Poreč, which was sent by my dear friend in Croatia, Zagreb yesterday.
Poreč is the first I have heard it, but it is not only famous in Croatia but also famous in European countries.
In Japan it unusually snows a lot in the northern district, but it still hasn’t snowed in Osaka, my city. But it has been cold for the past few days. We call this season a cycle of three cold days followed four warm ones (three cold four warm). Tomorrow early morning I have to fly to Cold Tokyo.
To dear readers, please enjoy the beautiful photos altogether. Have fun!

Poreč (Italian: Parenzo; Latin: Parens or Parentium; archaic German: Parenz; Ancient Greek: Pàrenthos, Παρενθος) is a town and municipality on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula, in Istria County, Croatia. Its major landmark is the 6th century Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
Poreč is almost 2,000 years old, and is set around a harbor protected from the sea by the small island of Sveti Nikola (St. Nicholas). The town's population of approximately 12,000 resides mostly on the outskirts, while the wider Poreč area has a population of approximately 17,000 inhabitants. The municipal area covers 142 km², with the 37 km long shoreline stretching from the Mirna River near Novigrad to Funtana and Vrsar in the south.
