    If you have a level of Japanese capability or know someone who does, I'd just get them to call every dentist office in the town and ask if they have any English speaking staff on hand. I live in a small town in Niigata, and there are actually several dentist practices in the town (amazingly!) and one of the dentists speaks English. The dental hygienists didn't, but we were able to get through the cleaning and check up with my broken Japanese and their broken English - but it was handy that the dentist spoke English when he was filling in a cavity I had. I know that's not all that much help but fingers crossed you'll be able to find something that way. Best of luck - I know from my own experience it's much more comforting to be able to communicate when the staff speak English :)

    http://japanhealthinfo.com/ is a great service to help you find English speakers. I have used it multiple times. It only cost money if you have them make the appointment.

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.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
