Snow in Tokyo

I woke up this morning and saw light snow flakes falling. It was the first real snow of the year, it covered my small garden in a thin blanket of snow.

Seeing snow fall in Tokyo is always a treat for me, as it is such a rare experience (on average there are only a few days of snow each year, maximum of 5), even though it plays havoc with most forms of transportaion. In case you are wondering, my bicycle ( in the photo above) and I made it to work hassle free.

Mid January to Mid February is the coldest (Tokyo temperatures range from -2c to 8c), and also the driest time of year.

If you are coming to town around this time, be sure to pack a warm coat. A pair of long underwear or tights will come in handy.
