Thank you so much to all participants who attended "What's ‘in’ in Japan 04" last Tuesday!
We enjoyed talking about the difference of "City Living" (e.g. furniture, futon vs. bed, bathroom, trash system, storage dilemma, balcony etiquette and so on ) between city and country side.

Here are a few topics we talked as follows;
- About the separate trash in Tokyo (23 wards), a new comer, Kenny from Canada can't remember which day is burnable, unburnable, bottles, cans, plastic bottles, papers and... some Japanese members have a same experience that Kenny still sleeps during the time a garbage car comes before 9am so he misses to throw away trash.
- As in common with all members, Japanese kotatsu is a very unique furniture but it makes us lazy not getting out.
- Wearing 3, 4 clothes plus knit cap, globes and thick socks to keep warm even at home (inside the room is cold).
- Some members from countryside not in Tokyo sometimes feel uneasy to make a relationship with their neighbors because everyone knows everyone.

Thanks so much for joining! Look forward to seeing you all next month.
If you wish to spend more events with us please go ahead and check out our upcoming events!
