Coming-of-Age Day 2013 - Heavy Snow-4

Just like last year, I was planning on hitting the streets of Tokyo to get some pictures of the usual Coming-of-Age Day kimonos parade, but when I woke up this morning it was just pouring rain outside, and I got instantly much less excited… Another glance through the window a couple of hours later to check if the rain had stopped, and suddenly I realized that one of the biggest snowfalls of the recent years in Tokyo was happening outside. It was one of these times, when you don’t even know It is has begun to snow, but suddenly when you look outside there is already a huge white blanket of snow upon  your familiar streets.

Well, right away I knew it was a stupid idea, and that all I would get from that would be dead shoes, wet clothes, drowned gear, and most likely a cold, but there was just no way trying to resist… I had to go outside and get some pictures of this very special 2013 Coming-of-Age Day. Here are some of them…
