A pain in the neck!

Literally! My sink and kitchen counter is way too low. I'm a short person but my back and neck are constantly killing me when I'm in the kitchen trying to cook or clean. Anybody else have this problem? Any tips for how to make it better? (aside from rebuilding the kitchen! Lol)

    My wife once had some lower back pain. She went to a specialist clinic, who gave her about two weeks worth of medicine, and a kind of back support thing to wear for a week. Cleared the problem right up. I tried the support on myself. Super tight. Bowing was out of the question, but I have to say, it felt quite good. With the kitchen thing, I had a similar problem so went out and bought a small stand/counter type thing from Nittori, which had a bit of extra height on which I could do food prep. It really made a difference. I still have to stoop over to do the dishes, but at least now I'm not constantly in that posture in the kitchen.

    My fridge was way too low too, so I got an old table and threw a bit of fabric over it and then placed my fridge on top of it. Worked fine for me.

    While I was pregnant I had this trouble too. I bought a chair on rollers to sit at while doing the dishes etc haha And as someone above mentioned at Nitori I found a little tray on legs and put it over the counter for extra height while chopping veggies etc !

Akita/Niigata in March

I´m planing to visit the Akita and Niigata prefecture at the end of March. What about the weather during that season? Is it still snowing? If yes how about the train situation? I guess because those prefectures are used to snow there will be no problem... Some experience of people living in these areas will be helpful!
