A pain in the neck!

Literally! My sink and kitchen counter is way too low. I'm a short person but my back and neck are constantly killing me when I'm in the kitchen trying to cook or clean. Anybody else have this problem? Any tips for how to make it better? (aside from rebuilding the kitchen! Lol)

    My wife once had some lower back pain. She went to a specialist clinic, who gave her about two weeks worth of medicine, and a kind of back support thing to wear for a week. Cleared the problem right up. I tried the support on myself. Super tight. Bowing was out of the question, but I have to say, it felt quite good. With the kitchen thing, I had a similar problem so went out and bought a small stand/counter type thing from Nittori, which had a bit of extra height on which I could do food prep. It really made a difference. I still have to stoop over to do the dishes, but at least now I'm not constantly in that posture in the kitchen.

    My fridge was way too low too, so I got an old table and threw a bit of fabric over it and then placed my fridge on top of it. Worked fine for me.

    While I was pregnant I had this trouble too. I bought a chair on rollers to sit at while doing the dishes etc haha And as someone above mentioned at Nitori I found a little tray on legs and put it over the counter for extra height while chopping veggies etc !

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.
