Japan does feel very cold though, mostly because houses and building are not properly insulated. I've been trying to avoid using my air conditioner at all costs, as the warm air is so stuffy and dry. Instead I've been relying on a small space heater, electric blanket, hot baths, tea, hot packs, ear muffs and heat tech from Uniqlo, and I think I'm mastering winters in Japan.
I've been parading around in my red rain boots, happy to wear them at any chance I get. My good old pair of Hunter rain boots retired after five long years of service, and I replaced them with a pair of Fox Umbrellas- mostly because they came with limited edition Liberty Print buckles. So far, so good.
I've been sleep-deprived for most of the week, as I still can't fall asleep before 3am. I'm exhausted and my eyes are red, but hopefully I can return to a regular schedule shortly.
In other news, Spotify changed my life, and I've been listening to music nonstop. I'm currently digging back into one of my favourites, TV on the Radio. I'm especially loving this and this- what an epic performance.
