Ever wonder what method you’ll use to get rid of the snow? Let us know if you’ve thought of this idea before! Take a look at the video below.

We probably shouldn’t ask this man, “Do you want to build a snowman?” Gracefully, and with precise aim, this man in Tokyo took down a number of snowmen. The video was originally posted by a theater company, but the one above is via Storyful. It appears the man is holding a katana, a traditionally-made Japanese sword used by the samurai. Fast forward hundreds of years and now we’re using this sword to take care of snowmen.

Colder and snowier weather invaded much of Japan this week. Parts of Tokyo received around 20 centimeters, or around 8-9 inches, of snow. The temperature dipped to -4 Celsius, around 25 Fahrenheit, making it the coldest observed temperature since 1970!
