Last week we had the biggest snowfall in 48 years, knocking out Chichibu Railway for nearly two days, which is unprecedented. Today we have an even bigger snowfall. Just over to the west in Kofu, Yamanashi, it is the biggest snowfall for 118 years. Biggest snowfall just East in Kumagaya too, recorded at 62cm this morning and still going. Can’t tell you anymore details as the TV reception has gone off!
Cannot get out the front door either. So all the photos were taken looking out from the windows.
It is very quiet except for the sound of the bamboo snapping.
