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.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
