    You can buy an insect spray that comes with a needle that you can insert into the tatami mat. I forgot which one we used but they have a lot of it in stores. They didn't get away quickly but they did after several days of spraying. :)

    Eek! I don't have any personal experience with them, but I remember reading that roach traps work on silverfish too. Good luck!

    While they may seem to be a nuisance, silverfish eat literally every other insect they find. Spiders, cockroaches, ants, they eat them all. I wouldn't be so quick to get rid of them using chemicals. If there are a lot of them, it means they have a large food supply. Getting rid of the silverfish may cause you to begin to have other pest problems.

Coffee Grinder

What's the best space efficient coffee grinder you've found locally? Do you take your beans to a shop and have them ground? Do you have a wee device you use at home? Friends gifted me a few bags, and I ordered coffee from Amazon Japan at a good price, but whole bean. Thanks for any replies.

Mentos flavors in Japan

Been chewing away on plenty of Mentos in recents weeks (for reasons that are not important here) but I'm getting sick of just the cola, grape, and mint flavors. In years past I alway remembered there being a whole bunch of Mentos flavors available in Japan but now I can only find the three. If you've seen any other than those mentioned above, can you tell me where?

Kotatsu advice

For this year's winter I want to be as prepared as possible...we've already got heated rugs in some rooms but I'd like to get a kotatsu for another room we have. Any recommendations for brands, or things I should consider when shopping for one? Also, are there any without an exposed heating element? I've got little ones in the house so the safer the better!
