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.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Any birthday idea?

It's my boyfriend birthday next month! I'm thinking about how to celebrate his birthday in Tokyo. We used to go abroad, but this time we would like to celebrate in Japan. Would be glad if your could recommend restaurants or any events in August? or how to celebrate in extra special way?

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.
