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.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Great article. What do you recommend? I have a MFA in Visual Arts. And teaching for the past 10 years in college level. Do I need teacher certification to land anything with JET? Thanks so much

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
