Snowing in Tokyo

Legend has it that in Tokyo always snows at least once every year, and since weather data began being collected in 1876 this has been confirmed true. Three years ago it almost didn’t snow but eventually it snowed during 20 minutes at the end of March. Today, starting at 9:00 pm, snow has started to fall quite heavily, since 2004 it hasn’t snowed so heavily (I am starting to feel like a Tokyo old man). I am wishing that the snow settles tonight so I can go out tomorrow morning and take photos! Temples are specially photogenic when it snows, if you are now in Tokyo enjoy the moment!

Yes, he is playing with his PSP!


I took this video when I was coming back from work. Riding a bicycle and taking a video while it snows… is not easy 😉

    He’s playing his PSP with both hands, how is the umbrella being held up? or is it just one of those umbrella hats?

    Your lucky you have snow, I’m in Vancouver and all we had was light flurries back in November and it didn’t even stick. We’re supposed to have the winter olympics here???
    It’s very disappointing!

    Wow! you are a crazy man! riding the bike and filming, i hope its not frozen else you could hurt pretty badly…

    We had a lot of snow in Paris this year, i want winter to be over soon because i’m really tired of it.
    I know snow is beautiful, but usually it brings some inconvients with it, like people falling on the street (including me lol).
