With the recent snowfalls in Japan, darwinfish of Gundam fame, went to the Yokohama Landmark Tower to capture a time lapse of Japan's second largest city from its third tallest structure. Meanwhile, TokyoFashionNews walked the streets of Shibuya and Harajuku for a bit of people watching.

From Tokyo Fashion News

Harajuku & Shibuya blanketed in white during the major snowstorm that hit Tokyo on February 8, 2014.

We wandered around Shibuya and Harajuku during the snow storm and shot some video to show you how pretty Tokyo looks after a snowfall. Many of the smaller shops in Harajuku were closed and there weren't too many people on the streets of Harajuku (especially for a Saturday). We haven't seen this few people on Takeshita Dori and Cat Street in a long time!

We also shot Hachiko, Shibuya 109, LaForet Harajuku, Kiddyland, Omotesando Hills, and other landmarks to show you what they look like covered in snow.

According to the Japanese news, this is the most snow that Tokyo has received in over 10 years (maybe longer, depending on which weather channel you watch).
