    Ah shoes sizes are really difficult to find in Japan for western people. Some of my friend were mention about it. they are going to the store which is from europe like H&M. Online shop which called LOCONDO http://www.locondo.jp/ , you can return even after shipping. So it is online store but you don't have to pay return fee, if it's not fit. Maybe you can't find any shoes that fits in you at Japanese retail store. :(

    Definitely try Rakuten! Rakuten will have size options you can select. I know that feeling, my feet are way too big for regular "LL" size shoes. I think Rakuten Japan has an English option as well, so it should be easy!

    For a bit of everything have you had a look at ZOZOTOWN? - http://zozo.jp/ Although, no English-language function with this site, that I know of.

    I usually buy from Nissen. They have women's size clothes up to 10L and men's up to 8L. Shoes too. I get most of my clothes and shoes from them. No problems with returns.

    I don't know about online, but for actual stores, I've seen bigger shoe sizes at ABC Mart and other shoe stores too. Good luck.

    My Aussie friends recommended Asos - anything over a $20.00 purchase is free shipping world wide (I just ordered from them and was pretty happy with the results!) I know your frustration well - Good luck!

    Shoes are easy. I am a 10.5 US (28.5 in Japan) and have had almost no problem finding my size. As others have said, if you go online you will find your size. ABC Mart and the "official" stores you can find in most malls/department stores (ex. Adidas, Adidas Originals, Asics, Nike etc.) usually have my size as well. If they don't have your size in store, look on their official websites. Pants/jeans are easy too - most Japanese chain stores (Right On, UNIQLO, GU) have my size (US32x32). When in doubt, try it on. Even when written in the US measurements, some are still too small/too big (same as the US though). T-shirts are harder - I am 6`2" and have bought way too many t-shirts that were just too small (vertical-wise), especially at UNIQLO or other cool T-shirt stores. I have found the XL at GU or ZARA is close to a US L, but quality is a mixed-bag there. Most Japanese shops are just too small. Long sleeve is also very hard (sleeves are just too shirt). When in doubt, head to GAP or OLD NAVY. New shops for each store sprung up last year in my city.

    Shoes are really difficult to find. I have a 41 (europe) and that will be a 25.5 or LLL in Japan and any shop that I went had those sizes. I have never try online shopping. On the other hand, on a shop call earth and ecology, sometimes I have seen sizes up to 25.5 but too expensive for me

    Try shopping at asian websites like wish.com and always order 2 to 3 sizes lrger than what your size is in the US like for example I am a medium in the US so i wear and buy XL.

    Definitely rakuten, or Amazon Japan, not US. Locondo is good, too.

    ASOS has free delivery and returns. NEXT let's you shop in Yen which is great if you are paid in Yen.

    I really like next online store. The delivery is really quick too. Their sizes can sometimes be a little bit bigger than you expect. I think because my expectation is things to be small after living in Japan but next sizes always seem to be generous.

Sending parcels overseas with Japan Post

I think I may have touched on this in one or two blog posts, and this is as much an airing of frustration as it is a question. For the last few years I've used but one Japan Post office, close to where I work. I'm a regular there when it comes to sending parcels home for birthdays, Christmas etc. In the early day, I would just be asked to fill out that little green slip about the contents of the parcel, and would also be asked if there was a letter inside. (To which I always replied "No," as it makes things more expensive.) The next stage was that staff would then started to look at what I had written on the form and if there was anything that might be construed as needing a battery, they would ask me to write "No battery" if one wasn't included. Are they ever? Fine. Then things moved onto asking me what was in the parcel before handing me the green slip, so I felt like I was having to announce to the office staff what a cheap skate I am when it comes to presents. And then we would do the green slip, and the "battery" questions. Now another layer has been added -- on top of the questions, the battery check and the green form -- I now get a separate form, a kind of tick-the-box checklist through which I declare that I'm not sending any cigarette lighters, matches, sprays etc lest I face prosecution. Then we get onto the questions, and all the rest of it. I'm just wondering if others are being taken through the same process when they send things overseas with JP, or is it just that particular branch ... or just me. It's kind of taking the fun out of trying to be a good uncle, brother, son, friend etc. Still, at least they've stopped asking me if there's a letter in the parcel.

About the artcile, Faced with destroyed crops, town encourages hunting as business

The above article dated on Oct 14, 2018, has caught my eye and I am wondering that Japanese translation about the guy in this article may be wrong, which was described as a suspect, Okano, "東京都の岡野恵介容疑者." I hope he is not a bad person. Editor, please check the Japanese translation for the sake of his credit.

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?
