You may have seen on the news that Tokyo experienced the heaviest snowfall in over a decade this weekend.

Since I had studless snow tyres on my van, as well as chains, a shovel and tow-rope in the back, I thought I’d go out for a little night drive and see how everything looked.

This was about 11:00PM, and there were almost no cars driving other than taxis.

These are the trees in the park outside the Imperial Palace.

This is the Marunouchi entrance to Tokyo Station. On a Saturday night, there’d usually be people and cars everywhere.

I don’t think I’ve ever put a pic of my daily driver on here. It’s a Toyota Townace Noah Field Tourer. Slow, but gets the job done.

Part two of the JCCA show coming tomorrow.
