Do you have any suggestions or links of apartments for two people that can be rented for three weeks? Thanks!

    Your best bet will be Airbnb apartments. Check the host's feedback & ranking to make sure they look after their guests well.

    My first thought was AirBNB! I've had quite a few friends stay throughout Japan for a few weeks in apartments offered by them, and had great experiences.

    Sakura house is a good option. They are easy to book and have most things you'll need. Decent locations too. http://www.sakura-house.com/en I also agree with the AirBnB option, as they are cheap. However, privacy might not be as good if you're using AirBnB.

    Maybe try some the estate agencies based in Takadanobaba - they are used to finding places for foreign students and can do so in a number of languages I hear, so perhaps they could find something short-term.

    A share house or AirBnB are probably your cheapest options. If you really want to experience an adventure, you could try a capsule hotel.

    There are lots of options at booking.com (https://www.booking.com). You can find hotels, apartments, capsule inns where you can reserve without any pre-payment. Have a great stay in Japan. :)

    http://khaosan-tokyo.com/en/ for hostels (which have varying levels of privacy and cost) because you can meet a lot of interesting people and they have shared kitchens. Some locations have an attached bar. Three weeks is a long time to eat out every meal. Some of their locations have private rooms (some rooms are dormitory style) and they are each unique and friendly to foreigners.

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?
