Watching European Championship Football this summer from Japan

The Euros kick off this weekend, I think. Does anyone know the best ways to watch it from Japan. Cable TV packages and Internet streaming suggestions particularly welcome. Thanks.

Love travel, football, and a good read. Been in Japan for a little while now. Still loving it, still discovering new things, and still annoyed by how much packaging they wrap around snacks in this country.

    - Shin - I hope you figured something out in time. It appears that there are not any football fans around here. If you live close enough to one of the English pubs where lots of foreigners hang out (along with Japanese who like western culture/want a chance to meet foreigners), I imagine they'd be playing some football on TV? There has to be streaming available online too. I had several international students in the states who were watching games on their phones during classes, haha.

    helloalissa - Thank you. Yes, not many football fans by looks of things. I did manage to watch (the first of many) games that I wanted. It was on Asahi TV. I had to get up at, like, 4 am in time for kick-off. Luckily it was a Sunday morning so I had no work the next day. I'm not sure what other games the channel will choose to air, but (if anyone's listening) on the Internet, full matches usually turn up on 'Full Matches and Shows' an hour or so after the fact. All you need to do is avoid finding out the scores!

    It looks you have figured out about TV Asahi. Going forward they will air Semifinal Portugal vs Wales and the final. Unfortunately they will not air semifinal German vs France (the real final?).

    japandre - Yes, that Germany / France game is shaping up to be a good one. Hard to call for me. Griezmann seems to have the goals in him, and they've got the crowd behind them. Still, Germany really know what they're doing at the business end of tournaments. I can't figure out what Asahi TV have been thinking in terms of their scheduling. Still, at least they've been showing some of the games. I confess to being from England, so my interest has waned a little bit.

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.
