I’m a bit obsessed with getting out with my camera when it snows in Tokyo, which usually happens around the third week of February. It was a bit late this year, but I was glad to wake up to it this morning and be able to get out in it for a bit. Obviously, growing up in Canada, snow is no novelty, but it happens so rarely in central Tokyo that it becomes something I look forward to every year. Plus, did I mention there are umbrellas??? (I have a wee thing for umbrella photos.)
I went over to the Imperial Palace area and then strolled around Hibiya/Yurakuchō/Ginza a bit before heading back for some hot coffee.
Here are the highlights (yes, a lot of umbrellas):
The line below got longer and longer (I passed it twice) – I think they were waiting to get into some kind of performance. They all looked frozen and some (not pictured) were standing on subway exhaust grates for warmth.
