Tokyo is experiencing its first November snowfall in 54 years.


Residents of the Japanese capital were taken by surprise, as the temperatures around this time of the year usually range from 10C to 17C, the BBC reported.

It is the first time fallen snow has been seen on the ground in Tokyo in November since records started to be taken in 1875.

The snow, caused by an unusual cold front over the city, caused slight delays on public transport

The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) also warned of possible icy roads, snow on electric wires and trees, and the collapse of plastic greenhouses, according to the Japan Times.
