10 Captivating Photos Tokyo During Snowfall

Earlier this month, a heavy snow warning was issued in central Tokyo for the first time in four years. The Japanese capital often sees snow once or twice a winter, but significant accumulations are rare. While the heavy snowfall did cause disruptions to normal life, it also allowed shutterbugs to capture Tokyo blanketed in snow. 

Photographer Yuichi Yokota, who has shown us the beauty of Japan through his lens previously, grabbed this opportunity to take lovely pictures of the snowy streets of Tokyo. We all know that Tokyo is a stunningly beautiful place. But these pictures show how captivating it looks during a snowy night.
