    I have been using Biore that you can easily get in a drug store. I like it because it has no fragrance plus it is light. And cost wise it is very reasonable. I think I bought one for something like 1000 Yen and that lasts for quite a time. Try it I think you will like it as it gets absorbed very well and is non greasy.

    I'd recommend against the spray type. It's cool that you can use it on your hair, but I just felt like it wasn't very effective and I had to use a LOT of the can for good coverage.

    I've been using the stuff in the picture when I go surfing. Seems to be doing a good job. I've yet to see a sun cream in Japan that is weaker than a factor 30, so I think whatever you go with it will certainly be strong. On the other hand I've also yet to find a sun cream in Japan that comes in a decent size container. It's always really small and expensive at the price.

    Costco had a good selection a couple of weeks ago when I was there and they were all under 1000 yen. I actually order my own from abroad or sometimes get some in Tokyu Hands, but its about 5,000 yen.

    I don't know if you're a man or a woman, but I like to use foundation with built in SPF on my face to avoid stickiness or the unpleasant smell you can get with sunscreen.

    I also like Biore, specifically their Aqua Rich Watery Essence (or Gel). This page has a good rundown on the subtle differences between the 2: https://melissabeautylab.wordpress.com/2015/10/18/product-review-comparison-biore-uv-aqua-rich-watery-gel-vs-essence/

    All Biore products are recommended but I specifically prefer Biore UV Bright Milk due to it's powdery finish. It's economical (around 600 JPY) and it lasts for about 3 to 4 months.

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.
