Japan through Fujii-sensei's coat

Category :

Japan is normal cold. The difference, which necessitates coats like Fujii-sensei's, is that often they don't have central heating or insulation. Unfortunately for me the main school I work in has no central heating (or any other form of heat) and no insulation. Average temp in the staff room hovers around 16 degrees Celsius, or so the combo thermometer/calendar/clock on the desk next to me says. I guess that's around 60 degrees. Not too unbearable with my coat and lap blanket. It's the corridors with allll the windows open and the covered concrete pathway that's completely open to the elements and connects the two buildings that really start to get to you. Recently the kids have taken to lending me their hand warmers. <3
