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.

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
