Second hand stores in Osaka

What good Second hand stores do you know in or around the Osaka area. While the -Off places are good and all, what I'm really looking for is the medium sized ones that seem like they have some uncovered treasure...

    Have you tried the Nakazaki-cho area, maybe around 10 mins walk from Umeda station? I've heard there a lot of small stores around there that could be good for turning up some treasure.

    How about マンガ倉庫, manga soukou? About half way between Osaka and Kyoto. Web: http://mangasouko-takatsuki.com/

    Nakazakicho does have some good stores, but they tend to be really pricey. I've found KINJI to be the closest thing to thrift stores in the US. It's in the Big Step building in Amemura.

    Really depends on the kind of stuff you want to buy, if you're interested in manga, games, figures and such, Mandarake (one in Umeda and one in Amemura, around Nanba) is really nice, good prices and a lot of stuff to choose from :)

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.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!
