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.

    Sometimes Second Hand stores will buy them. Try calling them and see.

    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.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

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.
