Snow snarls traffic in Tokyo, 14 Jan 2013 (TWN)

Snow snarled traffic, created train delays and caused dozens of flights to be cancelled in Tokyo yesterday.

The first snowfall of the winter dropped about 8 cm of snow on the Japanese capital which stranded thousands of travellers at Narita International Airport.

Flights resumed today and trains began running again but many highways around Tokyo remained clogged with snow and ice.
