Niveous Tokyo

Tokyo doesn’t have many snowy days. On the Pacific side of Japanese archipelago the winters are dry and marked by many clear days. It is rare that the whole ground is covered with white snow. But today was such a rare day. Though the accumulated snow was less than 10 centimeters, which was far less than the heavy snowfall in the northern part and the continental side of the nation, Tokyoites are unaccustomed to life under snow. Pedestrians slip, cars go on a crawl, and very punctual public transportation services are snowbound. Be warned!

Today is “Coming-of-Age Day”, the national holiday for congratulating those who have reached their majority. Despite the stormy departure, I wish them all the best in the future!
