It doesn’t snow in Tokyo very often during the year, maybe once or twice. When it does snow it is normally in February or March, sometimes even in April. Since the snow is rare,people are excited to see it and want to venture out for a closer look.

My kind of place.
I had noticed the lack of snow in Tokyo in a few movies, especially when someone comments on traveling north and comments on the fluffy powdery stuff everywhere.
This is the first winter I’ve tracked the weather in Japan – is Tokyo usually this mild in winter? Apart from the freak snow day of course 🙂
We have has some unusually warm days this winter, but it normally doesn’t get too cold. Feb can be a cold month sometimes, but so far even with the snow, we are not feeling badly done by 🙂
Must have been great. If you had still there your nieces and nephews… have a pipe in some drawer just in case 🙂
Last time I made a snowman with friends we did a 2m (ca. 6.4 feet) one, the head fell off with the last pat of snow…
We were like 10 to 12 yrs old.
They have already gone home, but would definitely have enjoyed it. They live in Australia so snow is not something they get to see a lot of. Pity we didn’t have enough snow to make snowmen. I would like to have gone out and done that. Maybe next time 🙂
This is the area where the salaryman was taking a nap in your other article. Am i correct?
That is right. He would have got his bottom frozen off in the snow 😉
I love this black and white photo of this area. Great nighttime shot.
RT @tweetmeme Tokyo Snow, Japan Living http://bit.ly/bOWSP8 Alot of nice photos of the snowfall. In a different prospective. Alot of bloggers were posting their photos and comments of the snow fallling, and what they were doing at the time.
Great shot !!
we had “popcorn” snow the other day – “popcorn” snow is like grains of sand 1-2mm in diameter, is very dry and resembles hail . . . is usually very cold when this happens.
the photos I posted weren’t of the “popcorn” snow but a storm about 2 weeks ago – still some of the stuff lying about.
