    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!!!!!

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Great article. What do you recommend? I have a MFA in Visual Arts. And teaching for the past 10 years in college level. Do I need teacher certification to land anything with JET? Thanks so much

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.

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!
