    I've got a used k-car about 6 years old which cost around 500,000 yen if I remember correctly. Parking where I live in Chiba is around 15,000 yen a month. Cost to fill the tank is around 4,000 yen

    You can buy used car for good price. You can also look for online auctions.

    I think buying used car is a good option. but maintaining it, quite expensive. moreover if you live in Tokyo. you need to pay the parking lot Monthly, car inspection yearly.

    I moved here a year ago and I bought a 2003 Nissan Cube3 and so far absolutely no problems! I pay about $25 for gas every 1.5-2 weeks and that's driving to work every day! Travel time takes me 20minutes to get to work. If I'm going somewhere that requires parking I either ride my bike, take the train or find cheap parking lots that won't break my pockets. Some areas you can't avoid expensive parking. I am looking to sale my car simply because I don't really need it although it is convenient! I didn't have a car my first month here so I know that I can live without it!

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!
