During the winter you'll hear this cute children's song outside.
That's the cue that the gas truck is making its rounds in the neighborhood. Many people use the gas to heat their homes with gas stoves in the winter.
Our apartment complex does not allow the use of gas stoves, but I have seen some people in our building with plastic gas tanks...ahem.
Anyway, I shot this video of the truck when we went to Kyoto last Autumn.
And here is a video I found online of the song with english subtitles.
What do you use to heat your home during the winter?
p.s. here is a picture of the toumyo, I wrote about before...now, 10 days later....cool, yeah?! (by the time this uploads we'll have eaten it and we'll be starting round 3)...
