What a beautiful photo :) Canada's getting quite a bit of snow recently, and just last month there were piles in almost every neighborhood 4-5 ft high atop an already existing 12-14 inches on the ground (in Ontario and Quebec anyway).

I have never been to Japan in the winter, but your photos are convincing me already!

Cheers

I'm with you on missing snow...we actually had a centimeter or two of snow here in Augusta recently, which was shocking. Of course, it was gone overnight.

I didn't grow up with Canada-style snow, but I was still used to at least having some.

And I'm with Faye...that's a gorgeous picture!

Yep, the snow this year in and around Tokyo is kind of surprising even though it isn't really a lot. It seemed to snow more when I first came to Japan many years ago (early 90's) than it does now. At least I can tell my kids "when I was your age I had to walk to school (for work) uphill both ways in the snow with Japanese shoes that were 2 sizes too small." LOL!

Thanks Faye. That's a lot of snow, glad I'm not there! I think the amount we got here in Tokyo was just right.

Heather, snow in Augusta? I didn't know it was possible. By the way, where did you grow up?

Sherry, one of my older students claims that Tokyo got tonnes of snow every year when she was a kid. Not sure if I believe her (she also claims there was no crime) but I guess there's a small kernel of truth there somewhere. I chalk it up to the heat island effect.
I think Japan in the early 90s must have been tougher to live in than it is now. You can just tell your kids "When I was your age there was no internet, Costco or FBC" and that would be enough.
