Today’s Japanese word “Hatsu-yuki” (The first snow of the season).
Today in Tokyo, we observed “Hatsu-yuki”.
It’s very unusual that it snows in Tokyo in November.
Surprisingly, it’s 54 years after since 1962!
Snow was observed at Kofu (Yamanashi-ken) and Saitama in addition to Tokyo.

In addition, when snow piled up in the center of Tokyo, it will be the first record in observation history as November.
Well, “Hatsu-yuki” means that the snow falls for the first time in this winter, or the snow falls for the first time in the new year.
“Hatsu-yuki” announced by the Meteorological Agency has a definition.
