Mosquito repellent 2007/11/26 19:14
Hi guys,

Will be visiting Japan tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone can recommend a good mosquito repellent that is effective (preferably purchased in Japan), or some funky gadget or whatever to keep mosquitoes at bay.

Thanks in advance.

There are almost no mosquitos at this season, so after you arrive, you can ask around and do your research until summer.

no mosquitos, it's winter 2007/11/27 10:09
Unless you are going to Okinawa, it is far too cold now for mosquitos- all of about 12 degrees today. You won't see any on the mainland, I guarantee you.

I recommend buying repellent BEFORE arriving in Japan. I could never seem to find any decent repellent that actually works in Japan.

There's a widely available brand with an orange cap that I have used and it works fine. I've also seen a brand with a blue cap. They're easy to get at any convenience store in the summer. Just look for the pictures on the can of bugs bouncing off peoples skin.

I personally prefer mosquito coils however because i don't like putting stuff on my skin. They can also be bought at the convenience store.

Be careful bringing repellent over as you can't bring aerosol cans on the plane.

Why would you want mosquito repellent in late Nov- early Dec?
