Buying bulk

Does anyone know where I can get aloe Vera plant to purchase? I am also interested in finding wild blueberries and ripe bananas in large quantities ( like a case or box of each). Any help?

    You should be able to find aloe vera plants at most home goods / garden shops. It's still blueberry season... they aren't cheap, but maybe there's a farm that will give you a discount for a huge amount / if you pick your own with your family. (Around here they cost 320 yen for 100 grams at the farm.) For bananas... I would ask at supermarkets because they might have to throw out 'overripe' bananas all the time. I use them for smoothies sometimes and have been meaning to ask about that.

    Thank you @ helloalissa! I will definitely check at my local coop deli for the bananas. I use them for smoothies, snacks and nice creams so I’m constantly buying but the cost of the small packages really adds up.

    About bananas, do you have Gyoumu Super, Big A, or Marusan in your area? At these supermarkets, I often get a bunch of 5-6 for 100 yen. I have yet to see a case of bananas on sale at these discount supermarkets. Do you have a Royal Home Center or Shimachuu near you? These two home centers tend to have a big selection of started plants. I wonder, if you asked the plant nursery clerks for "aroe" they might bring it in for you.

    Sometimes you can find bulk fruit from produce stores, the little mom and pop shops that also sell 2000yen melon and such. I could get a whole bundle of bananas, like a full tier from a banana tree, at the produce store in town.

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.
