vol.31 January 2023
It has been very cold here in Kobe ❄ Typically, air in winter is very dry so humidifier is nice-to-have item. If the air is dry, the laundry dries quickly but it is not the case during the cold winter ⛄ Speaking of laundry, many Japanese would hang out the laundry and very much concerned about the weather especially when they are outside home. So, it helps to check out the laundry forecast aired on morning TV programs.
Wonder if this kind of weather map is unique to Japan or not ❓ but this actually helps a lot!
