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.

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.

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!
