Tokyo residents woke up to the first November snowfall in more than 50 years this morning.
An unusually cold air mass brought wet snow to Japan's capital.
Above-freezing temperatures kept the snow from sticking in most places, though it did accumulate on pavements and cars in Tokyo's far western suburbs.
Meteorologists forecast up an inch would fall, and more in the mountains north-west of Tokyo.
The snow caused minor train delays during the morning commute.
The last time it snowed in central Tokyo in November was 1962.
