A couple days into our time in Tokyo, the weather got really cold and snow was forecasted for a day we were originally going to take a train to another area of Japan for a day trip. When we woke up that day and saw the snow was indeed falling and the trains were all delayed, we opted instead to have a quiet day and enjoy the snow. I read somewhere that day that snow hasn’t fallen that early (in November) in the year in Tokyo since something like 1962, so it was really rare that we got snow in Tokyo while there. It was still a pretty wet snow so it wasn’t sticking in the city itself, but we thought we might get more of it if we headed to the Rikugi-en Garden – and we were right!
Once we arrived at this incredible city garden and park, it was magical! Snow was sticking, the Fall colors and Autumn leaves still vibrant in shades of color and the park was quiet as not many people wanted to venture out in the weather. The day ended up being one my favorites of our trip and this spot was absolutely gorgeous!
