What should I eat?
14 hours ago
It’s so hot and I don't have much of an appetite. But I know I should eat something.
What do you do with old clothes?
Can you donate? Throw away?
There are some shops that take furugi (old clothes). Some thrift shops are picky about brands and quality though so I would check. If you want to throw away, you have to check which days they take old...
So when is rainy season over again?
It seems really long this year. I thought it'd be done by now. Isn't it supposed to be until mid July?
Hi this is the WeXpats team. Rainy season hasn't ended yet in Tokyo :( It ended by now last year, but this year, it is still continuing. But it seems that the weather will clear up in Western Japa...
People wearing masks
There's so much conflicting information out there. Like everyone in Japan is safe because they're all wearing masks. But some people claiming they're not. And the numbers are clearly risin...
Where I am, yeah. We have to wear masks at work and I would say 99% of people I see during my commute are wearing them. There are occasionally older guys not wearing them.
My laptop broke. Should I get a new one in Japan?

People have been out and about, right? but are there any extra measures being taken by establishments?
I went to a cafe last weekend for a quick lunch for the first time in months and they took my temperature and sprayed disinfectant on my hands. They also gave me an envelope to put my mask in, pr...
Is Tokyo okay?
I heard the second wave is hitting hard.
To be honest, not sure if it's the second wave or just an extension of the first that never went away, but there are over 100 cases these past few days which they say is more than when it started ...
You can't eat on public transportation?
A little confused about the etiquette.
No eating in trains, buses, taxis. But you can eat on the shinkansen!
My mail isn't coming. What should I do?
I ordered something from Japan in May but it still hasn't come yet.
They stopped international mail for a while and now they're backlogged. I'm sure it'll get to you eventually but it may take a while. I mean, you can try to call/contact them but they'...
