Making Japanese curry

I am trying to make Japanese curry at home. Confused with so many varieties in the market. I want something that has no beef to it. Any suggestions?

    I am confident that the one I use has no beef as I once asked in the sales girl in the store. But once you find this in the store ask to reconfirm.

    They usually refer to the different levels of spiciness. You might want to check the back in the ingredients if it has anything with 牛肉 written on it, as asking them "is there beef in this?" may be mistaken as "does this package include the delicious ingredients as shown in the picture?"

    I just took a look at the ingredients and the only meat product it has is gelatin.

    Like the other answers said, just look for the beef kanji (or meat kanji if you're looking for a totally vegetarian option). I think most curry that is just the blocks of roux doesn't have meat in it, but some of the instant types in pouches that you just heat up do.

    You might need to try iHerb for a 100% vegetation option, or an international food store. Some large department stores also have a vegetarian range. Many of the roux cubes have reduced meat fats, like stock cubes, so if you are strictly trying to avoid beef you'll need to check the ingredients list carefully.

    Yes golden curry is a good choice. Its just a little spicy if you have a small child.

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

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!
