stray power cords

Is it possible to buy just a power cord for a kotatsu? We can't find ours anywhere, and I'm not sure where to look.

    Oh no! Try checking the manufacturers website to see if they sell individual parts. Or possibly recycle shops like House Off? But I'm not sure if they're standard - all the same plug type, which would make it easier to replace the cord alone. If they are, the store where you bought it might sell cords individually for the same brand as your kotatsu. I'm guessing these things are lost or damaged from time to time so others must have the same problem and not need a whole new kotatsu.

    I could have written this, for a second I thought I did!! XD We are in the same (freezing our legs off) boat. If I find somewhere that sells them I will let you know and v.v please!

    @helloalissa @Saitama So under on the heater part, under the table top I found info about the kotatsu if you dont happen to know where yours came from like us. Ours was Cainz home and they dont sell the cord to our model anymore. But if you are lucky you can get one for only 700 yen on the cainz website.

    And look what I found today! It's a two pronged type... Hopefully you found what you were looking for by now.

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.

Cheap galleries in Kanto for an exhibition?

Anyone in the art community know of somewhere to exhibit art for cheap (or free)? I'm looking to host a short-term photo show. I'm looking for a very small space (even just a wall is fine) for around 10,000 a day (or less, obviously). Thanks!
