What's the most economical mobile phone family package?

My kids are clamoring for their own phones as they enter high school. I want to grant them phones for connectivity without going broke over monthly and hidden charges.

    Just as a reference point, have a look at NTTdocomo's シェアパック / share pack plans. 30GB a month at ~ 22,500 yen going down to 5GB a month at ~ 6,500 yen (for families with 3-5 members). Here's the link: https://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/charge/new_plan/bill_plan/packet/ If you can handle the Japanese you can do a payment simulation on their site, here: https://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/charge/new_plan/simulation/index.html This post (in Japanese) compares docomo with IIJmio, with a family of 4 coming out at 6,400 yen a month.

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?
