School is so far from us...our baby is too young to be thinking about it, so the daycare sounds good. What is the Japanese word for daycare? Or better, private daycare?

My husband is German and I think he gets 6 months tourist visa. We only plan on a year in Japan, and since we won't work there I hope it will be possible to renew our tourist visas from there. Hope I'm not too naive about it?

Pre 9/11 I think renewing tourist visas was relatively easy. Now I would say that it is more difficult.

Day-care is a borrowed word from English, so a day-care center would be デイケア・センター but there are also Japanese words like 保育園 and 保育所.
