HEAVY SNOW IN TOKYO

Tokyo is terrible snow from this morning. It seldom snows here in Tokyo.

朝から凄い雪です。

I took this photo from our house.
 
我が家から撮った写真です。
 
 
Yamanote loop line,  very near from our house.
 
我が家の近くを走る山手線です。
 
 
 
I took this photo from our top house.
 
我が家の屋上から撮りました。
 
 
Strong winds would blow with snow, so I could not go out from our house.
 
近くの六義園(都立庭園)に行こうと思いましたが諦めました。

  1. It's the heaviest snow I've seen in seven years in Tokyo. I went for a walk earlier today, but it was so cold that I returned home very quickly. I'm so glad I didn't have to work today! :)

      Hi! I think it was very lucky for all of commuters, because of today was a holiday.
      The snow will be frozen next morning,please be careful not to slip and fall.

      Thank you for your comment. I wanted to take photos at a metropolitan garden very near from our house. But because of strong winds with the snow, I gave up to go out.
      Today is the Coming-of-Age day. Many 20 year old girls would wear kimono and would attend a Coming-of -Age ceremony. It was a terrible day for them.

  3. MINORさんのご自宅は高台にあるんですね。1枚目の写真は、映画に出てきそうな情景で、いいですね。男性が雪の中を歩いてるのが印象的です。今日は「TSUTAYA」でイタリアの古い映画(ブーベの恋人)を借りてきて見たので、この写真にはちょっと共感を覚えました。六義園ですか? そりゃあ今日は無理でしょう。でも雪吊に雪が積もった景色はきっと幻想的だったでしょうね。

       こんばんは。お褒めいただきありがとうございます。雪が止んだら出かけようと思っていましたのですが残念でした。
       我が家は東京大学から飛鳥山まで続く本郷台地の上にあるので、出かけると坂は全部下り坂です。山手線も出来た当時はこの台地を登れなかったそうで、地面の下を走ってます。
       ブーベの恋人は確か白黒映画でしたね。私もあのメロディーは大好きです。

  4. こんばんは。
    こんな雪の日に「江戸百景」の雪の景色を撮りに行けたらなかなかおもしろいと思うんですが、電車も止まったりするし、まあ、考えるだけにしています。
    六義園がお近いとはうらやましいです。
    明日も雪がきれいに残っていたら、いい写真が撮れるでしょうね。

      こんばんは。そうですね、何事も諦めが肝心です。明日はコントラクトブリッジの試合に行きます。六義園には行けなくて残念です。

  5. It is so hard to imagine living with so much snow when it is eighty degrees here in Florida.

      Thank you very much for your comment. We have almost no snow here in Tokyo. Many people tumbled down today.

  6. It must seem strange to have this much snow, when there normally isn't any, Minoru. It sure is pretty though.
    We had 23 inches of snow in December!
    Happy Monday to you, my friend!

    1. Dear Lisa.
      Thank you very much for your comment. All most all cars would use normal tires, so many freeways were closed in Tokyo last day.
      Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

  7. Very pretty, if you don't have to venture out in it.

    1. Dear Pat.
      Thank you. I think so too. We would experience this weather once in ten years.

  8. Oh My God! This is so heavy, it seems everything is covered in white. I would have never survived even a day had I been there in this weather!
    Have a nice warm day Minoru :)

  10. 東京で散策できるところがあるかなと思って寄りましたら、この雪景色、きれいですが、すごい大雪だったんですねえ! 寒そう!六義園には良く行かれるのですか? 
    今時の日本の暑さはどうでしょう?昨年ほどではないといいですね。

  11. Dear Akemi sama.
    おはようございます。昨日が梅雨明けで、今日は33度まで気温が上がると予報されています。
     散策は皇居の内部に無料で入れる、東御苑がお薦めです。色々な規則がありますので、事前に調べて行かれた方が良いです。
     六義園は、我が家のすぐ近くです。
