    Tokyo, Japan slammed by snowstorm


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     American expat ChibaJapan braved an unusually strong blizzard in Tokyo, Japan, to build an impressive snowman with his young daughter. The weather caused severe disruption in the city, he said, leaving many trapped at home. "Most people stayed in and most trains and buses stopped running," he said. "We only went out to buy a snow shovel and saw many emergency vehicles running around -- car traffic was at a standstill."

    Tokyo and surrounding prefectures slammed by snowstorm. Shutting down most transit systems and causing many problems but also creates a very special time for others.
