Gifu here. This photo is in fact the city of *Kofu* in Yamanashi Prefecture, and not Gifu. We barely got any snow at all before it turned over to rain on Friday afternoon — there’s no snow on the ground at all now.

Kofu in fact saw record-smashing snowfall amounts — as of Friday night they had a mind-boggling 114cm (44 inches) on the ground, an amount not seen in 120 years. There were widespread reports of collapsing roofs and other damage, and as many as 15 people in the region were killed in accidents directly related to the storm.
**EDIT**: [A no-snow photo for comparison.](http://kakuyasu-ryoko.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/01ba98db8ea055ab4d6b83384e8cefc5.jpeg)
