Snowy Tokyo

雪の東京



Tokyo's temperature low on Tuesday was 1 degree Celsius, and, on leaving home that morning, it showed. Monday night's snowstorm had left a frigid white carpet over the capital's streets, admittedly a patchy one, but more than Tokyo has been used to in recent winters.

And, as the icing on the cake, someone had created not just one, but two, snowmen outside our building. The less artistic one got the better backdrop: the Tokyo Sky Tree (still under construction)...

...while the one with the beautiful lemon eyes and leek limbs got the trash collection corner:

I'm guessing that mushroom on the floor was the poor little guy's nose!
