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 fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.

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!
