Tokyo

by

Last week, Tokyo woke to its first November snowfall since records began.

And, as you’d expect, residents of the Japanese capital were quick to document the occasion on social media with the hashtag “tokyosnow”.

Given the striking nature of the shots, the resulting collection of images has received much attention online and so we’ve gathered some of our favourites for you to explore.

Check them out below:

They said "I do," nine months ago in Hawaii – a lavish but family-focused ceremony held following a five-year relationship.

But as they approach their one-year anniversary, Jenson Button has spoken candidly of his marriage, admitting that he and his model wife Jessica don't see each other very often.

In fact, the Formula One star travels the world's motor-racing circuits for much of the year. And when he does have down-time, he spends it at his residence in Monaco. 

Jessica Michibata, 30, on the other hand, resides some 10,000km away from the south of France – in Tokyo with her mum, in the same apartment she lived in prior to her marriage.

"Jessie still works a lot in Japan. She enjoys her job, she models, she had a television show and has just done a Japanese film,’ he explained.

"She enjoys working, which is great, but obviously it means that we don’t see each other very often. We’re definitely not settled in Monaco together."

The 35-year-old, worth €83.5m, furthermore admitted in conversation with Mail Online that he is a "not the same," while racing.

"I have to be selfish. I have to be focused," the Englishman said. 

"I am a very different person, and Jessie knows that, and she understands that, as do most of my friends and family. I can be a bit snappy over a race weekend."

And it seems Jenson is pretty set in his ways too: "I just need my apartment to be simple, easy, so I can come in, do my thing, and leave again, pack and repack and leave."

Mr Button, who currently drives for McLaren, continued: "You have to be so selfish when it comes to motorsport. The amount of hours you have to put into the training… you have to be selfish to succeed."

He and Jessica met in a hotel bar in Japan back in 2008 – though it took him a full eight months to persuade the lingerie model that his reputation as a womaniser and playboy was unfounded.

They separated for a while in 2011 – allegedly because she was becoming impatient with his lack of real commitment – but they quickly got back together.

Jenson popped the question on Valentine's Day last year, and they married within ten months.

The only thing better than shopping, is a holiday – put the two together and you’re in heaven!

For a some destination inspiration, read on:

Milan
It’s expensive, yes, but with Milan being one of the fashion capitals of the world, it needs to be on this list.

Madrid
You may not have thought about this one, but Madrid actually offers budget-friendly shopping. The city is pretty cool as well.

Paris
If you want style then Paris is the city for you. Make sure you bring a credit card or two… chic is not cheap here.

London
It’s one of the more expensive UK cities, we know; however, Oxford Street is a high street shoppers dream of so you can’t go wrong.

Kuala Lumpur
It’s home to three of the ten largest malls in the world, so if your budget can stretch this far you will be in shopping heaven.

Tokyo
Japan is famous for its fashionable shops and high-end boutiques. It’s the fourth cheapest city in Asia, so what you spend on your plane ticket you’ll save on your shopping.
