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.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
