Snowfall at Asakusa

Unusual 'snow make-up' of this popular tourist spot

By Manish Prabhune    - 1 min read

Tokyo experiences snowfall for not more than 3-4 times a winter season. A blanket of snow in the metropolis makes for pretty pictures, but grinds the traffic to a halt even with 5 cm of pileup. Unique 'snow make-up' (loosely translated from the Japanese word "yuki-keshou") offers rare views of the city. Asakusa, a popular tourist destination, is pictured in a rare snow pileup mode.

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 14 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
