    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 :)

Your best buys for keeping your house dry in summer?

We're going to likely be house sitting for family in Tokyo this summer - at least for a couple of weeks - which means that we're not going to be here in Niigata and able to be emptying our dehumidifiers constantly. Do you have any amazing products (even better if you have Amazon links for me!) that don't need you to be physically present to draw that moisture out of the air? The last thing I want is to come back to a sticky, sweaty, moldy house! Thanks in advance!

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!
