When he was growing up in the bitterly cold Canadian wilderness*, AsiaPundit’s mother would always remind him to dress warmly. AP’s female friends were also advised to do the same by their parents. In Northern Japan, things are different. In Canada the furyou girls would be the ones wearing short skirts in winter..:
“Rules is rules” in Japan. It may have snowed almost meter in Nagoya but school rules say “sailor suit tops and pleated short skirts” are the required uniform.
Oddly, school uniform skirts have got so short in Japan many furyou girls (不良少女, delinquent wannabes) wear their gym sweatpants and short together with hyper-short skirts. Schools in “snow country” relax the uniform rules to allow girls to add training wear when needed but Nagoya fashion rules seems to not include common sense.
