Tokyo sees first November snow in 54 years

Tokyo has been hit by its first November snowfall in 54 years.

The Japanese capital does see snow at least once a year, it usually falls in January or February and rarely accumulates for long. As much as two cm of snow was predicted for central Tokyo, according to the Japanese Meteorological Agency. *When the last flakes fell in November in the Japanese capital:* John F. Kennedy was US President

The first snowfall – which is called “hatsuyuki” – arrived 40 days earlier than average, Japan’s Kyodo news agency reports. Tokyo last saw November snow in 1962, though in that year it did not accumulate on the ground.
