Thank you. I am Canadian so used to plugging my car in overnight. I heard even Montreal and Ottawa are having an unseasonably warm winter with no snow, as well as places in the states like new york. We drove from tochigi to Kyoto and back for the 2016 New Years holiday, through gunma, Nagano, Gifu, shiga.....no snow this year! So interesting that besides it coming early, the snowfall in Hokkaido is as usual, so I guess the ice festival and ski resorts will have no problems.
@maynestacy I never see anyone use block heater in Japan, or see anyone warm up their car. Maybe Japanese change their car every 7 years, so they don't really care about their car's engine.
