Christmas Crackers

Does anyone know where I can buy Christmas crackers in the greater Tokyo area? I mean the type of Christmas game where two people pull on either end of the cracker and whomever gets the larger part of the cracker gets whatevers inside. Thank you

    Your best bet is to buy it online from Amazon Japan or Don Quijote. http://goo.gl/tTrRfc

    Can you not get them in Costco? A mate sent some over to me this year from back home. I'm surprised they made it through customs/security! Don't tell anyone! Ooops! Anyway, I'll be out and about in Tokyo this weekend, so I'll keep an eye out for some.

    Thanks Kevin and Tomuu. I used to get them in Costco, but they stopped doing them 3 years ago. ;-( They were lovely ones too. Last year, a friend organised a load and gave her foreign friends them as Christmas presents. Great idea. Swore I'd do it this year as she's moved home, but... well you know yourself. So here I am, cracker-less!!!!!

Best cell phone options?

I am about to get a newer cell phone and sign up for a plan in Japan. This is actually my first time getting one in Japan. I was wondering what options are the best. I of course have heard of Softbank, AU, and Docomo, but I wanted to know what everyone recommends...

Easter events

I know it is not very common to celebrate easter in Japan, but since more and more easter goods and sweets are in the stores, I thought there might also be some events. Does anybody know of some easter events, preferable in the Kanto area?

What's your favorite Tokyo hanami spot?

I feel like I've hit up all the "standard" hanami spots: Yoyogi, Asukayama, Ueno, Yanaka... What's your favorite spot (preferably not on that list) and why?

What are you watching on Netflix Japan?

In need of some inspiration or focus. I find that when I'm presented with a lot of choice I end up not really choosing anything, as is the current situation with my Japanese Netflix. So, if you've got any recommendations as to what's good (or not) on Netflix, I'd like to here them. To narrow it down a bit -- I'm after TV / docu series not movies, and this is purely for entertainment not for studying Japanese or self-help (although I'm probably in need of the latter!). Recently I've watched ... Peaky Blinders (so good, so grim) Narcos (original -- started on Narcos Mexico but couldn't get into it) The Vietnam War (amazing docu series, but very draining) Bodyguard (not Costner / Houston but a BBC drama - worth a look) Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Adam Samberg light fluff) Sunderland 'Til I Die (football doc - worth a look for fans of the game)
