    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.

Certificate of Eligibility

Hi there. So! The embassy of Japan has told me that if I want to have a long term visa I need (mandatory) a job and a certificate of eligibility and there's no way around this. The amount for working holidays is nearly 10 000 € and it's a lot. Any suggestions on how I can get a good job and a good presentation to have a job in Japan. I wanted to be a teacher.
