Heavy Snow in Japan

Parts of Japan had their heaviest snow of the season along the Sea of Japan coast last night, according to NBC News. Some parts had 25-40 inches of snow. As you can imagine travel was disrupted across the entire area. Shinjo in the northern prefecture of Yamagata got 40″ of snow. Tokyo has not seen any snow yet this season. That may change this weekend with a chance of snow in the forecast.
