Cosplay Hot spots?

I partake in the art of cosplaying, but we haven't had any luck with seeing too many cosplayers around Akihabara. Anyone know of any hotspots where you can gather and have people come over to take pictures?

    If you are looking for cosplayers I think you should check out the area next to Harajuku station, in front of Meiji Shrine on the weekend. They usually gather around there. Also, you can look up some cosplay event to go, here is a Japanese website that you can search for events. http://www.cosp.jp/event_list.aspx

    I think you can sometimes see cosplay on the approach to Tokyo Dome (Suidobashi).

    Takeshita Dori on a Sunday is usually the best place :)

    Hi Dash, I know it's a bit of a trek, but if you're ever in Nagoya, Tsurumai park on the weekends is always host to groups cosplaying. Nagoya also hosts the World Cosplay Summit in the summer - the parade was a blast to watch!

    A friend of mine has been having a lot of luck in Osaka! I know it's a ways away.. Recently she went to nipponbashi street festival. It was pretty cool!

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
