Today it snowed in Tokyo. The rain turned to sleet and the sleet turned to snow. And then it snowed, and snowed and snowed. We went to Akabane. The trains were chaotic - not running. There seemed to be a lack of understanding from some Tokyo-ites that snow tyres are required to drive in snow. Rear wheel drive cars with no snow tyres... I can't imagine that insurance would pay for their misadventures.
|Today was coming of age day - not a good day for walking|
around in geta and tabi.
|The worst job in Tokyo today - I think this constitutes human|
|The whole JR system was in chaos|
|The subways were doing a bit better|
|The Catholic Church in Akabane looked|
|Trains were out most of the day|
|It's amazing the way some cars think they are invincible to snow....|
|Tokyo is ill-equipped to deal with snow.|
