The heaviest snowfall in decades has left 12 dead and more than 1,500 injured across Japan, yesterday. The snow has paralyzed the public transport system and left hundreds of thousands without electricity.

The snow forced airports to cancel flights and closed roads, as it barrelled past Tokyo on Saturday.

Forecasters are warning of blizzards and avalanches later, as the storm moves north towards Hokkaido.

Last week Tokyo residents were warned of a severe snowstorm for the first time in more than a decade.
