A winter storm dumped 10 inches of snow on Tokyo over the weekend, grounding 740 flights at Narita Airport, causing deadly traffic conditions and knocking out power in more than 20,000 households. Snowfalls beyond a light dusting are extremely rare in Tokyo, and this storm has already broken a 45-year record. It's also being blamed for one of the lowest voter turnout rates for Tokyo's governor election in recent history.

Amidst the disaster, many people took to Twitter to post the roadside snow sculptures they found on their jaunts outdoors:
