Getting a tank of propane in central Tokyo is nearly impossible. Most homes have natural gas for the water heater and cooking. I called the gas company and they came out and installed a gas outlet for me (cost: $150 for the installation). The maximum size available is 3/8" so I can't use a very big burner, but it's better than the stove top in the kitchen. When I went to buy a burner they only had propane compatibles in stock so it took a week to order the burner with the correct fittings for natural gas. Got a nice 15' hose to run the gas line outside where I do my boils and it works great for 5 to 10 gallon batches.
