The last time I was in Tokyo (in March 2011) it snowed from time-to-time, but never enough to stick. So I was surprised when I walked out of my apartment to find this on Monday afternoon:
It snowed for the rest of the day. By the time I came home from the office around 11:30pm there were workers salting the sidewalks and tiny snowmen here and there. The snow didn't change my commute, but I heard from the staff that the buses were delayed in the outlying areas.
I've been homesick this week. I miss my people, my places and my things.
