Disinfectant Spray Similar to Lysol?

Do any of you fellow expats know of a similar spray to Lysol in the US (spray disinfectant) that you can get here in Japan? Our daughter is coming down with a bug, it seems, and we're doing our best to keep germs at bay as much as we can. Would love some input if you have any suggestions!



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along! I try to update my blog daily - and my husband also writes on City Cost as "genkidesuka"!

    @genkidesu yeah! You can find the kitchen one almost anywhere. I buy mine at the drugstore because it is close to my house.

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?

Credit Card approval in Japan

Hello fellow gaijins! Has anyone experienced applying for a Japanese credit card? I applied last weekend for a jcb card and it was an onsite application. I received a phone call from them after 4 days verifying my information. Could this be a good sign that I might get approved for the card? To this date, it has been 4 days since they called and it's silence so far.
