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.

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.
