Online shopping site in Japan

Which online shopping site in Japan is most user friendly for foreigners, i.e., has English service and most streamlined? I tried a few and when I click for an English version, it directs me to their foreign site which will charge exorbitant overseas shipping charges (as goods are shipped from outside Japan).

    By using Google Chrome browser with instant on-line translation makes it relatevly easy to shop on most of Japanese web sites. Amazon.co.jp is probably the best choice overall. By buying a gift certificate in any convenience store, you can do easy shopping even without credit card.

    I agree with the others here. I think amazon.jp is pretty easy to navigate with minimum Japanese, and can easily calculate postage to your Japanese address.

    Amazon JP has a lot of English on its basic platform, other than the descriptions of items that the sellers type themselves which you can try to Google translate. Shipping is great on amazon JP too.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
