Friendly family dental practice

Can anyone help me to locate an English speaking dental practice? (preferably one that takes National Health Insurance). I desperately need to get dental appointments for my family. Thanks very much

    You're in Fuchu in Tokyo, right? This link has some options in downtown Tokyo. https://bestlivingjapan.com/tokyo-english-speaking-dentists/ I can't speak for any of them personally but there is information about which do and don't accept JNHI. When I lived in Tokyo I was covered by international insurance at the time (now I'm in Niigata on JNHI though!) and went here http://www.tcdo.jp/StaffDentists/ which was very good, but pricey...and they don't take JNHI. Hopefully the other link has some options that might be good English speaking choices and there are several that accept Japanese insurance. Good luck!

    I'm not sure where you live, but my go-to dental clinic is Bluff Clinic in Yokohama. They are super family-oriented and everyone speaks English fluently. You can make reservations online and they accept NHI. However, you need to make a reservation a bit in advance because the spots tend to fill up quickly. Let me know if you have any more questions about them. :)

    @hellonihon, thank you for that info. I’m in Fuchu. Will have to check to see how far away Yokohama is from me. Awesome that it’s fully English speaking.

    http://japanhealthinfo.com This is a great place to contact if you want to find English speaking medical services. It only cost money if you have them make the appointment.

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
