Snow Day Redux!

One snow day, that’s rare enough in Tokyo, but two within a week of each other! 2012, The Year of the Dragon, has certainly gotten off to an auspicious start.

Here, reprinted from my flickr page, are some of the most popular pictures, along with a few personal favourites, I’ve taken during Tokyo’s mid-winter snow season.

I love snow, especially when it falls in big, wet, heavy flakes that settle on everything, and transmogrify the everyday into a fantastical alternativer universe. Guitars make texture not music, and a subway station is the threshold before a winter wonderland.
