Signs you live in snow country

We were out grabbing some groceries this morning when I saw a new addition to the parking lot at our local Aeon Mall. A complete line up of snow ploughing equipment! This would be a bizarre addition to a parking lot when living in Tokyo, but apparently in Niigata they have to bring out the big guns at this time of year. 

They’re evidently doing their job well though - the parking lot was free of snow and a breeze to drive around!



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along! I try to update my blog daily - and my husband also writes on City Cost as "genkidesuka"!
