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.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

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.
