How Much, Weekly Expense in Japan (March 12 -18)

Debunking or exacerbating the myth that Japan is an expensive country. We’ll let you decide.


Here’s a week’s (that’s seven days) worth of spending highlights, lowlights, the curious and the mundane.


Saturday

This day saw us in Roppongi getting a taste of the West when we stopped by for a gentrified Sunday-style lunch … on a Saturday.


Beef & Guinness Stew from Hobgoblin, Roppongi - 1,500 yen


Sunday

Panic buying chocolates for White Day on the Monday (14th, March)


Not too expensive, but not too shabby i.e. just about passable box of chocolates - 1,200 yen

Monday

The teiki (commuter pass) had run out without being noticed. It needed topping up for the daily slog to and from work


5 days to cover all return journeys to the office, on Tokyo’s metro (one-way ~ 40 mins) - 4,100 yen


Tuesday

The headphones were doing that psychotically annoying thing of deciding by themselves which tracks to play on my portable listenin’ device. I brought them into retirement.


Standard Apple headphones from a Labi - 3,500 yen (Let’s contemplate that … 3,500 yen!!!)


Wednesday

Getting through am I really only halfway through the week blues with an energy fix


ENERGY Gym drink - 120 yen


Thursday

Lunch with the ladies at the Ramen Girls Festival in Yokohama


Two bowls of outdoor slurpage - 1,800 yen.

Read more about the event in our post here.


Friday

Screw it! It’s nearly the weekend, let’s have a treat to see us over the finishing line.


Some rather splendid orange-taste ハイチュウ (haichu) chewy sweets - 130 yen. Oh yeah!! That’s how this dawg rolls of a Friday!!!


Total weekly expense in Japan - 12,350 yen
