It snowed quite hard for Tokyo overnight, but by morning most of the snow had turned to ice. Despite this quite a few people were out and about on their bicycles, business as usual. We're not used to such conditions in Tokyo, but the cyclists that were out were cycling where they thought safe to do so and got off to push their bicycles where the snow was thick or water had turned to ice.
