    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?

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?

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!
