Tokyo hit by snow, for once

4 February, 2008

Snow in Tokyo

East Asia is currently suffering a very harsh winter, with some parts of China seeing their heaviest snowfalls in 100 years. Even Tokyo is suffering, which is a rare event indeed.

More than 200 people were injured and one man died after yesterday’s snowfall in the Kanto region. Road and rail services were affected, although most routes were back to normal by this afternoon.

No further snow is forecast for Tokyo this week.
