Japanese people contrive ways to protect against the cold to get by their chilly winter comfortably. In town, we found people with scarves and ear muffs on, several socks worn on top of each other, and those with exothermal underwear on. We visited a family living comfortably in their house covered with heat insulator over their exterior walls all the way down to 1.5m beneath the house, saving heating expenses by making good use of earth thermal and solar heat. And disposable heating pads, products which have now come into use worldwide. We made a visit to a company developing new products one after another.

The Coolest of the Cool
I am an artist shironuri here in Brazil, I too love the Japanese culture as a whole, I love their traditions festivals, harajuku, fashion, sweets and behavior.
I here in Brazil as well as being an artist shironuri (art that transcends Geishas and Kabuki theater) fabricated 5 kimonos for me, I have a bonsai in my house, a vast collection of fans including one brought kyoto for me.
My favorite food is Japanese sweet mochi, love it and the way it's done.
well am also in love with Japanese anime and my art shironuri always include references anime sailor moon which is my favorite.
Japanese bands have several that I love as golden bomber, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, rice, Raphael, among others.
The Japanese snack Takoyaki is my cool japan! The variety of flavors simultaneously tickling your taste buds is just pure heaven. The best part, of course, is eating the large chunk of octopus inside! Oishii!

I started to found Japan cool since my teenage by reading manga and wtahcing anime. " My cool Japan " now is more idol and AKB48 but I really like other part of the japanese culture. " My cool Japan " is also when I visit this country and spend time with my friends. I also like discovering new place by myself and I really hope one day to live in Japan. This year " My cool Japan " was to celebrate my 40's birthday in Nagoya.
