    While Yuju's link is helpful, I think your ought to have a look at two posts that I wrote in my Cost of Living in Japan series for more details. Have a look at the cost of my utilities for one year in this post - http://www.trekkingwithbecky.com/cost-of-living-in-japan-utilities/ Although I'm in Kurashiki, which is far from Iwate, I think that the details I included will give you a better idea of what to expect when it comes to how much your utilties (gas, water and electricity) will cost you. I noticed that taxes aren't covered in the link, and since you'll be in Japan for more than a year, you'll have to pay the residential tax. Although the amount varies from city to city, it can cost you a lot. Have a look at this post - http://www.trekkingwithbecky.com/the-cost-of-living-in-japan-taxes/ Good luck with everything! :D

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
