Moving to Kagawa

Im looking to move to Kagawa/Takamatsu to play hockey and teach english for 6 months. Can anyone advise me on the cost of rent and other expenses for that area? Im finding it hard to see any results by googling. Thanks.

    Hi there. A good place to start would be the 'area' page on this site. Here's the page for Kagawa; https://www.city-cost.com/city/kagawa This article will give you a general idea of the costs to get set up in Japan. It's based on prices in Tokyo so expect things to be a little cheaper in Kagawa; https://www.city-cost.com/articles/92-living_food_money_transportation Here's some of the costs you might expect for food;https://www.city-cost.com/articles/130-food_shopping The Kagawa University web page might have some useful links;http://www.kagawa-u.ac.jp/kagawa-u_eng/english/for-newcomer/kagawa-university-international-house/living-costs/ Hope this'll help you get started. I'll post more as and when.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Great article. What do you recommend? I have a MFA in Visual Arts. And teaching for the past 10 years in college level. Do I need teacher certification to land anything with JET? Thanks so much

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
