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"!

    https://www.amazon.co.jp/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=lysol&tag=yahhyd-22&index=aps&jp-ad-ap=0&hvadid=24351352010&ref=pd_sl_7ii0yeeuos_b just so you know you can get it on amazon. but if you are looking for something similar, there is a haita that is for the kitchen. https://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%AD%E3%83%83%E3%83%81%E3%83%B3%E6%B3%A1%E3%83%8F%E3%82%A4%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BC-%E5%8F%B0%E6%89%80%E7%94%A8%E6%BC%82%E7%99%BD%E5%89%A4-%E3%83%8F%E3%83%B3%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%82%B9%E3%83%97%E3%83%AC%E3%83%BC-%E6%9C%AC%E4%BD%93-400ml/dp/B000TGMGJ8/ref=sr_1_13_mimg_1_health_and_beauty_display_on_website?ie=UTF8&qid=1509884150&sr=8-13&keywords=%E3%82%AB%E3%83%93%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A9%E3%83%BC it basically disinfects counters.

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

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
