Who else is parenting in Japan?

I am just curious (and maybe the information useful to City-cost) who else is parenting here in Japan? City-cost maybe a parenting / family section might be handy down the line! ;-)

    Meeeeeeeee! Send help any time... Parenting as a foreign couple (no Japanese spouse) is so hard sometimes. I miss the family connections and support, it's beautiful to see other people loving on your baby. Also, all the Japanese needed for kiddy life here... But these challenges can bring you closer to your spouse. I love the friendly Japanese community, and affordable childcare (compared to Aus). And purikura with my bebe - LOVE IT!

    I'm parenting. It would be very convenient to have a space to find information about parenting here.

    I am a parent in Japan! I have an almost 3 year old son and I am 14 weeks pregnant. A parenting section would be great!

    I know this is an old question but I am! I have a 2 year old (soon to be 3 in December) and a 6 month old. I find parenting posts some of the most helpful because they are the area I have the most questions about!

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?
