It may be getting colder in Japan, but it's already winter in England. During those bitterly cold times, surely I'm not the only one who says "I miss Japanese hokkairo”? A hokkairo warm pad is an indispensable Japanese winter tradition, but shockingly only a few people use them in England. Perhaps the Brits just aren’t aware of the wonderful use of hokkairo? Allow me to proudly introduce it to you!
How To Keep Feet Warm
To put it bluntly, hokkairo is a charcoal hand warmer; just without the charcoal mess and with all the warmth. The special charcoal activates once you open the packet and shake it about to ooze heat. Not only does it generate heat, but it also has a great technology that maintains that comfortable, warm temperature for a long time. This product gets to a temperature as high as 64°C but don’t worry; it’s cleverly made so that you won’t burn yourself. You’ll be lulled by the wonderfully warm invention. In fact, even at such a mini size, it lasts for about 10 hours!! It’s not limited to just warming your hands either. As it’s a “sticking-type” brand, this heat pack will stick firmly to anywhere you want warming on your body as you can stick it to your clothes or body. Personally, I love putting them in my boots to keep my toes roasty-toasty but they’re also good for shoulders, the bottom of your back, back of your neck, your hands or even your waist!
Guaranteed Japanese Quality
Did you know that hokkairo originated from Japan? Thus it is a proud Japanese technology! Its recognition in various countries around the world is gradually increasing. Therefore, similar products may be now on the market, however to be honest, I’d have to say that the original Japanese hokkairo is a product of perfection and is unmatched!
Getting To Work & Keeping Warm
The next time you have that cold feeling in your back or want that warmth boost that gloves just can’t provide, have a go at using a marvelous hokkairo heat pack. It is perfect for winter commuting as it’s ideal for protection against the cold and keeping you as snug as a bug in a rug. Even on mornings when you have to drag yourself out of your cozy covers; with the hokkairo it’ll be like you’re still snuggled up whilst waiting for your bus. Many people in the UK still don't know of the wonderful Japanese technology of hokkairo, so I definitely recommend it as a gift. Give the gift of warmth this winter and survive the bitter cold in England with the hokkairo heat pad that Japan is so proud of (your tootsies will thank you!).
