    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!

    We bought a used car when we got ours. The biggest costs here in my opinion are insurance, and depending on where you live the necessity for things like snow tires. Since we live in snow country it was an absolute requirement for us to have snow tires, so things like that add to the cost. We live in a small town so where possible we try and walk or ride our bikes, so fuel costs aren't over the top.

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.
