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!

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?
