Play Badminton for leisure

My friends and I are looking for a place to play badminton leisurely around Tokyo without having to spend too much and without going too far.

I am curious about the world around me. So I am exploring Japan one step at a time.

    Can you read Japanese? This site gives a list of places in Tokyo. They are rated and give the distance from the station. http://www.spot.town/spots/tokyo/-/badminton/

    I know that Shibuya Sports Center has some badminton courts open to the public. Well, it used to. I haven't been there for a while.

    I don't know of any specific places in Tokyo and it depends on the area you want to play in. I'd ask around at community centers near where you live. Usually they have a weekly schedule for activities in the neighborhood including badminton. Sometimes the clubs meet in school gyms if the community center doesn't have one. Local badminton clubs will charge a monthly membership or you can pay each time you play.

    You can register for a membership in your local sports center. Registration is usually free but you have to pay a minimal fee when you use their facilities. It should be just below 500 yen.

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?
