The First November Snow In Tokyo Since 1962 In Breathtaking Photos
The first November snow In Tokyo since 1962 is making headlines all around the world due to this beautiful photo series taken by Japanese photographer Shizuo Kambayashi. The talented photographer has taken to the streets of Tokyo to capture a historic moment for Japan’s capital – the first November snow in over 50 years!
Snow is pretty much a regular thing during this time of the year, in the Northern hemisphere, but in Tokyo, the capital city of Japan, this ‘thing’ does not happen as often as you may imagine. It’s clear that global warming has led to severe climate change that causes unnatural weather phenomena all over the world.
The Edokko, aka Tokyo‘s locals, were extremely surprised to see snow in November, especially since most of them couldn’t even remember the last time this phenomenon took place in their city so early during the year.
By now, we can hardly say that Japan can surprise us with something new, since we always expect nothing but the weirdest and the most ingenious things to pop-up straight from the Land Of The Rising Sun. However, from time to time, Japan manages to surprise even its own people with beautiful displays of natural phenomena.
