    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.

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.
