Favorite baby wipes?

Possibly an odd question - but parents, do you have a favorite brand of baby wipes here? We have spent most of our 4 years in Japan living on an American military base so whilst we bought Japanese brand diapers we usually bought American wipes. I find that the baby wipes I've tried in Japan so far don't have the same textured feel to them like American ones. I'd love to hear about your favorite wipes brand and WHY they're the best choice for you and your little ones! Thanks!

After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!

    Hands down: Moony Cashmere wipes. Over the years I tried a number of wipes with my four kids. The Moony Cashmere wipes were the only ones that didn't cause my kids irritation and they very rarely had nappy rash. The only time one of them had nappy rash is when I used another brand for a longer period! When my friend came to visit last year she was using Irish wipes on her boy until she ran out. I gave her the Moony to try and she (and the baby!) loved them, because they are mainly water so you don't have to worry about chemicals. I am a loyal dedicated Moony wipe fan!!

    @Saitama thank you!! That's an awesome recommendation - I love all the points you made about no nappy rash and no chemicals...perfect! Excited to give them a try. Navigating parenthood has been one of the trickiest things about being an expat here!

    If you live near a Costco, Kirkland Baby Wipes hands down. They are big, soft and get all the poo off easily. You can also order them off of Amazon Japan, but they are a bit more expensive.

    Merries baby products are also good and comparatively reasonable too.

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.
