Pretty much knew it was going to snow due to the very cold weather we've been having in Tokyo. Last year we had to wait until mid February to get settling snow but this year our serving came early and it was really bucketing it down last night.
Photos taken out n about last night and this morning. Extremely pleased with the performance of the Sony NEX-5N and the Zeiss F1.8 24mm lens - awesome combo is awesome.

All photos in this post (and a few more) posted in HD wallpaper format in my Google Plus account - feel free to trace to use.

For weather checks I use this resource at Yahoo. If you are traveling to Tokyo at this time of the year, I would advise on a warm coat, gloves and hat as the wind can be biting cold at times. If you are going to use the trains then you may boil to death as its usually really warm down there - unless you bring something like a Uniqlo down jacket which are warm but light.
The JR trains and many restaurants go overkill on the heating making it extra uncomfortable when you are on the move - a light but warn jacket will save your bacon.

Lots of folks are sick at this time of the year which is why you will see many folks wearing surgical masks like this - this is because either some folks are sick (and don't want to spread germs) or because one does not want to catch any germs. It can also be because they have no mouth and don't want people to know that they are from Mars or that they have three tongues.

Has it been showing in your neck of the woods?
