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.

Your best buys for keeping your house dry in summer?

We're going to likely be house sitting for family in Tokyo this summer - at least for a couple of weeks - which means that we're not going to be here in Niigata and able to be emptying our dehumidifiers constantly. Do you have any amazing products (even better if you have Amazon links for me!) that don't need you to be physically present to draw that moisture out of the air? The last thing I want is to come back to a sticky, sweaty, moldy house! Thanks in advance!

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!
