Many people in the Kansai region are getting a crash course in driving in snow. People do not normally get many opportunities to drive in snow in Osaka or Kyoto cities because it snows very little.
The latest storm has dropped between three and five cm of snow. Along the roads today, during the snowstorm, many cars were backed up because of fender benders.
The snow will continue into the morning for a short period, which may cause more traffic congestion if the temperature drops below zero tonight causing the streets to freeze. This will make driving difficult, especially for those who have never really driven in snow before.
