Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!

Credit Card approval in Japan

Hello fellow gaijins! Has anyone experienced applying for a Japanese credit card? I applied last weekend for a jcb card and it was an onsite application. I received a phone call from them after 4 days verifying my information. Could this be a good sign that I might get approved for the card? To this date, it has been 4 days since they called and it's silence so far.

Tell me the things that make you think about leaving Japan?

A lot of my friends in Japan finally came to the country after having wanted to come here for so long. After living here for a short time though, most of them soon go back home. Just wondering why that might be. Thoughts? Do you find that after living overseas for a long time, things become more difficult?
