“Hokkairo” or a personal heating pad is an essential product during the cold season in Japan.
Especially in cold areas, when going out it is very useful for traveling due to its compact size.
However, it also seems that this common Japanese product is popular even in warm climate countries such as Southeast Asia.

Those who have traveled to Southeast Asia may understand, but in reality the air conditioning inside buildings is typically very strong.
For example, it is very effective for office workers and clerks inside cold shopping malls. It is said that “hokkairo” has become a popular item in Thailand and other countries.
