Snow in Tokyo

Woke up to the sight of falling snow outside. We are staying on the fourth floor. The roof of the house beside the Machida Human Network Experience Room is covered in snow. The upper side of the bare branches of the trees are coated with snow. It is white everywhere. Snow is still falling. Those landing closer to us melt upon contact to the ground. Those further out accumulate on whatever they landed on. It is powdery. According to Maejima-san, our translator, it seldom snows in Tokyo. We must be very fortunate to come during this time and get to see snow. This is exactly like a scene from the movies. This is so surreal.

  1. This picture reminds me when my family and I were stranded in Brentcross Shopping Mall in London in February 2003. We have to sleep in the Mall overnight since the roads were gridlocked. What an experience. My son is also in Tokyo. He too showed me the snowfall yesterday via his webcam. How I envy him when we in M’sia is sweating our heads off.
