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!

    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.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

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.
