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.

Gently Used furniture

I will be visiting Japan early March and I want to arrange for the purchase of several pieces of furniture for my husband‘s new apartment. We are both well into our senior years and for health reasons can only see one another once a year. He needs a double bed, a small two-seater sofa or a recliner chair and a small kitchen table with two chairs. We cannot buy them right now but I do want to arrange to purchase and have them delivered before I arrive in Japan March 5. Bilingual. Any ideas?

Mentos flavors in Japan

Been chewing away on plenty of Mentos in recents weeks (for reasons that are not important here) but I'm getting sick of just the cola, grape, and mint flavors. In years past I alway remembered there being a whole bunch of Mentos flavors available in Japan but now I can only find the three. If you've seen any other than those mentioned above, can you tell me where?
