I spent a winter in Hokkaido right without electric heat, just kerosene heaters. Pockets of the house were literally frozen but we survived. That said, one winter was enough.

It seems energy management in Hokkaido is as well organized as the production of butter. My sympathies to those who are going without both this winter.

I am glad they are working to get ready, and needless negativity about the challenges does not help much. I would think it better to encourage them and wish them well.

They better do something about it. It's getting cold up there already.

Earthquakes tend to repeat so it ain’t over yet.

I have solar panels and two clean small rivers. Fruit and vegetable garden and there is very good well nearby.

@alfie. It is us without butter, they keep for themselves. Expect vegetables in Tokyo to double in price.

This article is literally about them doing something about it, because it's getting cold up there.
