Its cold here. Sure, its not “Canada” cold, but outside is windy and cold. Like many buildings in Japan, Hello House doesn’t have any insulation and the windows are single pane glass. In addition, the cleaning staff likes to leave the doors and windows open during the day, so all of the hallways and common areas are really cold. My room has it’s own heater, but as soon as I go into the hallway it is unpleasant. At least in Winnipeg when it is -30 degrees you can stay warm inside.
