So Much Snow – Yonezawa Japan

25 01 2011

iReport — Bing from New England we are used to snow and have been expiring lot’s of it this season or at least we think we are.

Yesterday I arrived in Yonezawa Japan. Yonezawa is approximately 250 miles North West of Tokyo. When we got off the Tsubsa (the famous bullet train) we saw snow, so much snow.

Yonezawa as I understand it is in the older part of Japan. Some of the things this area of Japan is know for is the samurai village, Yonezawa beef and the hot springs.

From this video I recorded yesterday you can see snow and lots of it and how Yonezawa is using the hot springs to their advantage.

Being a hearty New Englander I can handle this. After all it’s only snow!
