A plane carrying 201 passengers has skidded off the tarmac while attempting to land at Japan's Narita airport, forcing authorities to briefly close the runway.
Video footage showed airport crews scrambling to move the plane to a gate, with authorities indicating snow and ice was the likely cause of the incident.
Overnight temperatures in Tokyo were around 1C and light snow is forecast this week in eastern Japan.
Airport officials closed one of Narita's two runways for an hour and passengers were escorted off the flight, but the Boeing 787 was still stranded on the tarmac at midday.
The aiport is now fully open but Japan Airlines said that further congestion was expected following the incident
