Hey guys. So my wife is from Malaysia and she just got here a year ago. We've been trying to find a job for her but we can't seem to get any employer interested. Are there any leads we can follow on for a job as an English teacher? Happy 2018!

I've looked online but the costs seem to vary.

I've got a bunch of clothes that my kids have grown out of that I am looking at selling - lots still with tags (because kids seem to grow like weeds, am I right?) Anyhow, I was looking for recommendations for where to sell them. I know that Off House takes clothes, I believe, but are there any online selling groups based in Japan that are useful for that sort of thing? I know back home in Australia there are plenty of online Buy/Swap/Sell groups and I was wondering if anyone knows of anything else like that here. Thanks in advance for your help!

What I'm wanting to do is purchase starbucks here in Japan with my paypal in the states. I have money in my paypal account, but Ive only ever used it for ebay purchases. I was thinking maybe being able to buy a giftcard online, but I don't know where to look to be able to have the giftcard work in Japan. U.S. giftcards don't work here right? Any suggestions?

As a gaijin married to a Japanese citizen, we just returned from another six-week trip in Japan, living like locals, and re-visiting the cities of Kyoto, Okayama, Kurashiki, and Takamatsu for the purpose of finding a place to own and permanently reside. Our housing options considered range from a renovated machiya to a 2LDK mansion. We seek an environment balanced between the built and the natural. Any recommendations and why? How can we overcome the challenges of uprooting and becoming an expat?
