Snow + Tokyo = Chaos
Northern Japan is very used to snow with places such as Akita or Sapporo receiving several meters throughout the winter. It's a little less common in Tokyo but when it arrives, chaos ensues. Tokyo drivers are unused to snow and many tend to drive as if it's a beautiful summer's day. To add to the situation, pedestrians also tend to assume that the sliding car coming quickly towards them will be able to break and stop, although they've probably already thought of that. When it snows in Tokyo, stay home and keep warm. It's better than being run over.
