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!

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
