First Snow in Tokyo

As I mentioned yesterday, it snowed in Tokyo. It was the first snow in this winter and many people seemed to be quite excited about it.

This is the view from right in the middle of Tokyo, very near the Tokyo Tower. The building at the back is Keiko University (慶応義塾大学) where many of my class mates in the primary school wanted to go. Beautiful building, isn´t it?

According to the news, many people fell over because of the slippery street and five were taken to the hospital. NEWS


If you are Finish or Icelander, you maybe tired of the snow but I love it. I love waking up in the morning when it snowed during the night. Without opening the curtain, I just know it snowed. I don´t know why but it seems to me that there is no sound as if the snow absorbs all the sounds that exist. 

See how much snow we get this winter.
