Floyd Mayweather vs Connor McGregor in Japan

Does anyone out there know where might be a good bar / pub in Tokyo to watch the Floyd Mayweather vs Connor McGregor fight this Saturday? If there are any places showing it, that is? Also, can anyone explain to me why there has be sooo little fanfare or coverage about Mayweather vs McGregor in the Japanese media while the rest of the world seems to be going crazy about it? I mean, they are fans of both boxing and various forms of martial arts over here, I thought.

    I think that Floyd Mayweather will be the greatest win! You can watch "DAZN". It's free during one month. https://www.dazn.com/ja-JP

    A few friends of mine plan to go to Legends Sports Bar in Roppongi - they're meant to be broadcasting it there apparently!

    @genkidesu Thanks for that. Can always rely on Roppongi for this sort of thing!

    Did you find somewhere? I was in Ireland when it was on and people stayed up (and out drinking) until 6 am to watch it. You could watch it in any bar. Pity Paddy Foleys closed; they would have shown it for sure!

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

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!

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.
