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.

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!

Credit Card approval in Japan

Hello fellow gaijins! Has anyone experienced applying for a Japanese credit card? I applied last weekend for a jcb card and it was an onsite application. I received a phone call from them after 4 days verifying my information. Could this be a good sign that I might get approved for the card? To this date, it has been 4 days since they called and it's silence so far.
