There are some indoor inconveniences too. We heat with toyu. It gets delivered to our front door, but then we have to carry these big heavy jugs from the first floor to our apartment on the third floor.
We don’t have clothes dryers in Hokkaido, we air dry our clothes. That’s fine in the summer because we have a nice balcony outside. In the winter, we hang the clothes inside. Sometimes, it gets kind of crowded.
