Amid heavy snowfall, Tokyo goes to the polls to elect a new governor
Tokyo residents braved through the snow on Sunday to go to the polls to choose a new governor.
To reach polling stations, many residents had to pick their way slowly through pavements covered in snow, ice and slush following heavy snowfalls for most of Saturday.
Snow storms the whole of Saturday dumped 27 cm of snow on the city, the highest in 45 years.
Fortunately, trains and subways were mostly back to normal operations on Sunday.
