Some-one translated:

"No matter where
I go on the shores of Tago,
I can look up and see white snow,
it keeps falling
on the cap of Mount Fuji. "

The poem is number four Teika's Hyakunin Isshu.

In Man'yoshu it says that it is just snowing, as Hyakunin Isshu it says continuing snow, as snowing on snow)

Here is my Turku-language translation in my old HTM-page:

Tikkis Ogura 4 in Turku dialect

I suppose google translator not got a Turku-dictionary? :-)

But anyway, the idea is about the same above!
