Unhappy Re: ..any cd mommas in okinawa japan??..

We're in Japan, but not in Okinawa (we're on the outskirts of Tokyo). Where I am I haven't seen any cloth diapers for sale on the economy, though I'm sure some still do it. I have ordered all of my cloth diapering supplies while we're over here. It would be nice to find a store that sells them, though.

I"m here in Oki, On Kadena, there's a market day and chisaibums.com has a pretty good and varied selection of cds, wet bags and some northern essence stuff, it's always the last saturday of the month. She's super sweet and has stuff on hand.

I live just above Okinawa. Hope you are going to enjoy it here!

Brick and mortar stores don't sell the cloth we are used to, but any baby clothing store (Nishimatsuya is a chain that is on Oki too) or department store with a baby section will have covers and flats. Those are great for drying outside if you don't have a dryer, most Japanese don't.

I buy most of my diapers from Blue Bear. It's near Tokyo, but free shipping in Japan.

I don't live there but we do have family there and my husband grew up there. I know that you can still buy cloth diapers there. You just have to figure out where to find them and it may not be what you are used to. They do have a great selection of them though. Ask the locals especially the older ones and they should be able to help you find them.

Re: ..any cd mommas in okinawa japan??..

P.S If any of you are willing to ship cloth diaper items to me I know of a website that you can get great stuff. My husband is Japanese, reads and speaks fluently. I can't order from there because they only ship to Japan. As I have not met any of his family there I have no where to ship them to and no one to ship them to me I can't order.
DH's grandmother is the last one on his mother's side of the family there and she has lost her mind. He doesn't know his biological father.
It's a long shot but I was just wondering.

I am in Kobe, Japan and although I don't CD I know for sure I have seen places selling them. There is a store called Akachan Honpo (Baby Depot) that sells everything at good prices! They seem to be all over Japan so maybe you could check there? Also, like PP's said Dept stores for sure will have them but they may be super pricey!

Hope you love living in Japan
