Tokyo, The governor of Japan’s capital Tokyo has urged people to wear turtlenecks this winter to stay warm and reduce energy consumption. Governor Yuriko Koike said that wearing turtleneck jumpers can help reduce energy bills. During her statement, Yuriko Koike told reporters that heating the neck has a thermal effect. I myself am wearing a turtleneck and wearing a scarf also keeps you warm. This will save electricity. He said that it is simultaneously one of the tools to get through the harsh winter energy climate. Let us tell you that turtlenecks are such clothes in which the collar completely covers the neck.

Energy saving campaign in Japan
Japan has long run an annual “Cool Biz” campaign, encouraging a casual dress code in offices to save energy during the country’s sweltering summer heat. Under this mission the winter edition is appropriately labeled as “Hot Biz”. Japan, which is aiming to become carbon neutral by 2050, has faced pressure on its energy supply like many countries since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in August called for saving electricity while reviving the country’s nuclear power industry to tackle rising imported energy costs. However, the move to revive the nuclear power industry will probably prove controversial after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, which was triggered by a massive tsunami. Due to which many reactors were suspended due to safety fears. Eleven years later, 10 of Japan’s 33 nuclear reactors are back in operation. However not all are operational year-round and the country is heavily dependent on imported fossil fuels.
