Looking for Japanese bank address

Can any of you less-frustrated Japanese readers or super sleuths find the address of my former bank in Japan? It is moneykit.net, the all-electronic division of Sony Bank (ソニー銀行). So electronic, I can't find a physical address, which is required for US tax forms. All documentation is in boxes, the account is since closed, I am no longer in Japan, and my eyes are burning from all the googling in Japanese. お願い致します。

What should I do about a dog that is not supposed to live in the building?

The renters upstairs have a dog. Our lease clearly states no pets, and the dog barks all the time. I've talked to the guys upstairs about the dog, and they told me he would only be there another week. That was one month ago, and I still hear and see the dog daily. Should I approach the landlord, or is that petty? [more inside]

New hiking boots seem tight - will they stretch with use?

I've bought a pair of what I assume to be reasonably good hiking boots for a long trek/challenge I'm doing at the end of August - 100km in 36 hours or so, through the Australian bush north of Sydney (bush = forest, national park). Trying them out, eg. on a 12km walk at the weekend, they're quite tight across the toes. If I keep wearing them (generally around the place, and on longer walks) will they stretch over time, or should I buy a better fitting pair while I still have time to break them in? [more inside]

Fastest transition to another webhost?

My Yahoo small business account (webhosting) was closed because my autopay credit card expired. I called to try to reopen and was led to believe that my website would be put back up like old times once I signed up for another year of webhosting. This does not now seem to be the case and I am now going to cancel the order within the 30 day period. Who do you recommend as the best webhost provider for a very small service business? (HTML5 capability would be nice.) I need to get up and running with someone else asap before i miss more emails/potential clients. Also, should I use the new webhost provider for email or something like googleapps? Thank you for any advice.
