No need to have access to Costco outlets or be a Costco member for their cheese or other goodies - Yoyo Market and Flying Pig can get Costco products for you and deliver them to your door here in Japan. Yoyo is a bit cheaper delivery-wise -product prices are similar.

You DON'T live in an all-denka house. If you have a wood stove you don't have all-electric, you simply have mostly electric.
Actually, the house was built as all-electric. The wood stove and chimney and fireproof wall were added later as backup for use during power outages/extreme cold. It's definitely all-electric in the summer!

All denka houses cannot use other heat sources because they will become CO2/CO deathtraps.
Not at all true.
I live in an all-electric house, with a wood stove - the wood stove has a chimney - the products of combustion go out through the chimney. And I can cook and keep warm even when the power's out.
No gas needed.

No need to wait until October first.
There's already free wi-fi service right next to Tokyo Station - for ANYONE.
There's a corporate (insurance company?) public space - a large and quiet room with chairs and tables and a drink machine and TV news and wi-fi - free - for anyone to use, in the basement corridor that connects Tokyo station to the Oazo Building. (Marunouchi side, north end of Tokyo Station)
