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.

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.
