Disposal of Furniture in Tokyo

I'm thinking of getting a new bed, so that means I have to get rid of my old one. Long ago, I found a flyer that states that they collect furniture and whatever other things that you don't need in your house anymore for free... But I can't find it anymore! Does anyone have any recommendations?

    I don't know where you're going to get your bed from, but home stores like Nittori I think will take your old bed away free of charge, provided you're buying the new bed from their store of course. IKEA do the same but will charge you for it.

    You can try list your old bed on http://www.sayonarasale.com/ maybe someone will take it for free. I agree with DaveJpn, ask the store to take it away is the easiest and cheapest way.

    My experience is the same as DaveJpn, whenever I am replacing anything in the house the place I buy the new one will take away the old one free of charge or for a minimum fee. If I am just chucking out without buying a replacement, I use the disposal service at the city hall. It is free, but you have to book it and there are fixed days of the month that you can either bring your item or have it picked up. Every municipality is different, but I think most offer some sort of disposal service for larger items so it might be worth contacting your city or town hall to ask.

    Like Saitama said, city hall will have options for you. But also you should be able to view the information online and maybe even in English. I live in Chiba and the information is available in several languages in booklet form at city hall or online.

    You can apply for collection of 粗大ゴミ (large waste) at your city hall. You can choose a date and the items you want collected and then they will come to pick up. It’s about a few hundred yen to 1.000 Yen per item depending on size. You have to buy stickers for 粗大ゴミ at your local convenience store, stick them on the item, write your name on them and put the item in front of your building. Then you can just let it sit there until it’ll be collected.

Best products for dealing with ants?

Fellow City-Costers - I need your help! Living out in the countryside has its perks but spring has seen a bunch of ants wanting to take up residence in our house! What are your favorite products to keep the ants at bay? The less strong (but still efficient!) the products are, the better, since I've got 2 little ones and a pup to consider. Thank you!

Bus commuter pass?

I see people with a bus commuter pass and I'm wondering if there's any information online about this? (I can find a lot of information about the train tekken commuter passes.) I want to see the prices and if it's worth it for me to buy one. If it matters, I'm looking for Yokohama area ones... Keikyu bus or Kanachu bus. (or is there one for all companies?)

Lipstick Recommendation

I am Not a makeup girl. I like chapstick, maybe one with a little color in it. That's about it. I'm a natural type and would probably get lipstick onto clothes / cups so I've just avoided using it. I've been checking out the lipstick (and tinted chapsticks) sold in drugstores (usually under/around the 1000 yen price range) but don't know anything about make up. I want to get one pink (not too bright) light feeling lipstick. Any ideas? Are they all sort of the same at that price range? Local is better, but I noticed Shiseido's are over 2000 yen each. Is it worth it? Cruelty free gets bonus points.

Japanese Men psychology for dummies

So, I have a question to ask. Maybe a guy can answer better... Anyway, all help is very much welcome. Do Japanese men answer to texting when we (women) write melo./ cheesy texts? I'm kind of straight forward and I say things as I feel them but, my boyfriend, he doesn't answer it, he puts very pragmatic answers and it's kind of like he's avoiding them, like making a detour around it. He used to reply at first, he was never cheesy, just sweet. Then... no more!!! I wonder if I said or did something wrong. He says no. But I'm starting to doubt it! Like a 6th sense! What do you think?
