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.

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
