Typhoon Warning Service?

Does anyone know of a subscription-type service I could sign up for which would send me an alert/email/notification if a reasonably sized-typhoon is approaching my area? I noticed last year my phone's weather app labels them as "heavy rain" and I find it both misleading and perilous for the stuff we keep on our balcony that can be blown away.

    I personally use the Japan Meteorological Agency, but as far as I know they don't send alerts... or maybe I need to turn something on to get them. If you read Japanese you can use http://weathernews.jp/ and set up an alert. Even if you don't read Japanese this site has great graphs and videos that give you a clear visual of what's going on.

    I use tenki.jp and I found it is closer to the real condition then the weather information which is default installed in my iphone. Unfortunately it is in Japanese, but you can see the figures so you can generally understand what's happening.

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.
