What nappies (/diapers) do you recommend in Japan?

We always used pampers when the kids were babies (and very happy with them), but now on my 4th I switched to Mamy Poko when she turned 2 (in the hope she'd start to train, but no such luck). I am not happy with them for her as she leaks a lot. I am considering pampers again, but open to suggestions. What nappies/diapers have you used and liked? And does anyone else's kid do this? (Photo: Hide in the nappy rack in a store) :-) Thank you

    Loyal Pamper consumer here too - what is it that makes them better? I'm wondering if it's the nice stretch they have around the waist band and in the tape? Recently I sent hubby out to buy nappies and he came back with GOO.N. And hey, they're not so bad! Not as stretchy as Pampers but no complaints either. I'll be buying them again I think. They were less than ¥1200 for a pack of 80 from our local Nishimatsuya.

    I stuck with Pampers for 2 years before trying Genki brand. I never went back. Genki holds A LOT more than Pampers. No more brand loyalty from me. Also, Amazon does not always have the cheapest, it's usually the corner drug store near my house.

    I use Pampers during the day and Genki pull ups at night. My daughter is a heavy wetter and this combo seems to work the best for us. I've tried other Japanese brands, but she just pees right through them.

    We use merries for over night because they seen the most absorbent, but I use the cheapest brand I can find during the day. Merries has never let me down but others have leaked

    I've used pampers since she was born. I tried moony with a trial pack but they left her bum red and wet. I don't think they were as sucky uppy as pampers are. I'm tempted to try genki though as they have a lot of promotional packs here at the moment.

    I went with Goon. :-) They seemed the best value for money at our Welcia and they have "女の用” "girls" ones that seem to be designed for heavy wetters. So far, so good. ;-) Thank you all for your suggestions.

    I have used pampers and Genki. I liked pampers most because they fit my son who is bigger then average.

    Absolutely my favorite because they wrap nicely around me legs limiting the poopsplosions!

    After using a few packs of Pampers that we were gifted, I'm now trying out Moony but I don't think I'll repurchase since they're not as stretchy.

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.
