    If I'm not mistaken, milk here is whole unless written otherwise. 低脂肪 this is the kanji for low fat. Usually the low fat milk is cheaper. I also think most milk is local at grocery stores. I've moved a few times or visited friends and looked at the milk choices. The brand names are always different depending where I am. I have noticed at one if my supermarkets I go, beisie, there is vitamin fortified. It's a very colorful packaging with vitamins written all over it.

    I think you are looking for 無調整牛乳, in direct translate mean "unadjusted milk" aka whole milk.

    @KevinC im not positive, but I think 無調整牛乳 is non-homogenized milk, its not referring to the fat content, which whole milk is. I mean, its likely still whole milk though, unless indicated otherwise with 低脂肪 low fat, or 無脂肪 nonfat. That was what I understood from an article about 無調整牛乳

    The kanji is 全乳, but in Japan, most milk you can buy are unmodified 成分無調整牛乳 with 3.6% fat, which most people consider whole milk. These are about 70% of the milk you can pick up easily. Otherwise, the package would say 成分調整牛乳 which is modified and typically with lower fat, except for the 4.5% extra fat milk you can find. Side note: the best-tasting milk in Japan are from Hokkaido 北海道 so try for look for them if you can :)

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.

Cheap galleries in Kanto for an exhibition?

Anyone in the art community know of somewhere to exhibit art for cheap (or free)? I'm looking to host a short-term photo show. I'm looking for a very small space (even just a wall is fine) for around 10,000 a day (or less, obviously). Thanks!
