Record snowfall in Japan has disrupted land and air traffic in parts of the country.
Japanese meteorologists for Kyodo News announced that heavy snowfall will continue on the shores of the Sea of Japan until Tuesday, that is, that snow will continue to fall in the area from north to west.
Heavy snowfall has led to traffic jams, accidents, delays, and delays in flight and train schedules.
Cities in the west of Japan recorded record snow cover heights, so 68 centimeters of snow fell in the area of Hikona in Shiga province, and 71 centimeters in Asaga in Hyogo province.
Ten people were injured during the snowfall, according to the agency.
Citizens were warned of “possible lightning and strong wind gusts due to extremely unstable atmospheric conditions”.
Major roads, including the West Japan Highway, were closed to traffic.
