    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

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
