Want to move out Tokushima. How could I sell all the house stuffs. I am a foreigner. thank you!

Dear all, I am leaving Tokushima shortly. I could not speak Japanese very well. How could I sell all the house stuffs before moving out? Do you know any second-handed stores here who has someone who could talk in English? Or where could I hire a translator? Thank you, Best regards,

    If you go to somewhere like HardOff you don't need any language. Just take your ID and your things to sell to the selling counter.

    You can put ads (in English) on sites like Gaijinpot (Sayonara Sale) or local sites - I don't live in the area so I don't know what's available. Also tell everyone you know in the area & see if they're interested or know someone who is. It's a bit tricky to get rid of used things in Japan. Recycle shops are definitely a good option, if you have a way to take things there.

    Join garage sale and Tokyo sayanara sale on Facebook. I make more there than used store. Just offer free shipping in the price to make it easier. Any chance you have a mixer selling?

    Facebook garage sales are your best chance if your only option is English. Perhaps you could get a Japanese friend to call a se secondhand store and ask them to collect everything, for free and you get nothing or very little for your items. Otherwise some things are difficult to dispose of like washing machines and ovens and fridges, you might need to contact city hall about the rules for discarding them.

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.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

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?
