    There are guarantor companies here in Japan. I had to get one for my apartment. Cost is around 25,000 yen for 2 years. Paid all up front when you sign up for it. Don't ask me anything else about it because that's literally all I know...I don't even know the name of the company.

    There is no straight answer for that. The figure will depend on how much you want to borrow and on the bank's policies. Generally speaking, they look at your general financial health - long term savings, investments, credit history etc. For a foreigner they look at your history here too and you may need to have permanent residency to borrow.

    I didn't have to pay for a guarantor because I just used my employer and/or my close friend when I needed one for my apartments. They have to be Japanese citizens. Not sure if that helps or not. :(

    Hi Klous, Based on the types of questions you've been asking in the forum, I wonder if you've looked at hiring a relocation company to help you with your transition to Japan? I can't say they're all sunshine and roses to work with, but a relocation package through one of these companies (there are so, so many different relo companies in Japan!) can help you navigate the ins and outs of a VERY particular, paperwork and rules focused government to get bank accounts, finding housing, drivers license conversion, getting an ETC card and rail-pass, recommending resources like Japanese language classes, and registering with your local ward. They have native and non-native Japanese speakers, and are well versed in how what a foreigner needs to get on their feet here. I wonder if any other members of this forum have experience with these sorts of companies who can chime in?

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?
