I'll be in Tokyo with my family in July, and I would love to check out a sumo wrestling match. I found that there will be a tournament happening in Nagoya while we are there. It looks like the Shinkansen train can make the trip in ~100min. Is this a feasible day trip for 3 ppl (2 adults + 1 6y/o)? Any insight appreciated

Any Nagoya savvy folks who could comment on what towns to look at for real estate (rental or purchase) within a 30-45 minute train or bus ride of Nagoya Tsurumai Station?
Looking to be in countryside, or smaller town rather than within the big city as am desirous of green, fresh air and water, walking, a small garden,
but need to work in Tsurumai.

I'm looking for interesting places to shop in Tokyo. I'm specifically interested in any 'only in Japan' shopping experiences, but I'd also really love suggestions for great fabric stores. Suggestions for Nagoya, Hiroshima and Shizuoka are also welcome. [more inside]
