    Here in Kyushu, this recycle shop called Second Street often has outdoor stuff. Both used and overstock new items. No guarantees the locations in Tokyo will also carry outdoor equipment, but it's worth a try. It really depends on what people sell to them. A Shinjuku location is opening in a couple weeks (link), but there are other locations in Tokyo. https://www.2ndstreet.jp/shop/details?shopsId=31213

    For outdoor goods, OFF HOUSE would be your best bet. They specialize in home wares, outdoor supplies, etc. Here's the locations in Tokyo that sell outdoor / camping goods: https://www.hardoff.co.jp/shop/kanto/tokyo/offhouse/307/ You could also try HARD OFF if you can't get to an OFF HOUSE. In places where real estate is more expensive, HARD OFF acts as an umbrella store for most second hand goods.

    My first thoughts were also the Hard Off/Off House chain stores. Lots of them around the city and into the 'burbs. They're the main recycle shops I've used, but when you say outdoor stores are there specific things you're looking to purchase? Camping supplies? Hiking gear?

    Hello Genkidensu, My interest would be in Backpack - when possible ultralight one, although it would be difficult as lighter equipment tend to break easily :-) ... And it can be used as additional storage to go back home, as check in baggage Anyway, as beginner in outdoor activities, anything related would be interesting for me

    Did you find somewhere? FWIW I also add my vote to Second Street! Its great for camping gear. We actually bought ours new as we plan to use it for a very long time, but I got ideas in Second Street of what kind of things we needed and I was surprised by the great condition of the used goods.

    There are several used goods stores in Tokyo, Second Street and Off House being two of the most popular ones. You can also try buying online as there are a lot of people that sell goods at the cheapest prices (and sometimes free!). You can check out Sayonara Sale and Tokyo Craigslist.

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?

English Teaching Jobs in Miyazaki

I am planning on moving to Japan at the beginning of September as I got a job offer from a university, however, the pay is rather small and I have a husband coming with me there, so we kind of need to find a job for him as well. He has a bachelor's degree in English Philology, and he already speaks the language like a native, and I was wondering what could be the options in a place like Miyazaki for him. As I understood, English teaching jobs are popular for foreigners with a similar educational background as him, is there anything any of you could recommend to us?
