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.

Best cell phone options?

I am about to get a newer cell phone and sign up for a plan in Japan. This is actually my first time getting one in Japan. I was wondering what options are the best. I of course have heard of Softbank, AU, and Docomo, but I wanted to know what everyone recommends...

Easter events

I know it is not very common to celebrate easter in Japan, but since more and more easter goods and sweets are in the stores, I thought there might also be some events. Does anybody know of some easter events, preferable in the Kanto area?

What's your favorite Tokyo hanami spot?

I feel like I've hit up all the "standard" hanami spots: Yoyogi, Asukayama, Ueno, Yanaka... What's your favorite spot (preferably not on that list) and why?

What are you watching on Netflix Japan?

In need of some inspiration or focus. I find that when I'm presented with a lot of choice I end up not really choosing anything, as is the current situation with my Japanese Netflix. So, if you've got any recommendations as to what's good (or not) on Netflix, I'd like to here them. To narrow it down a bit -- I'm after TV / docu series not movies, and this is purely for entertainment not for studying Japanese or self-help (although I'm probably in need of the latter!). Recently I've watched ... Peaky Blinders (so good, so grim) Narcos (original -- started on Narcos Mexico but couldn't get into it) The Vietnam War (amazing docu series, but very draining) Bodyguard (not Costner / Houston but a BBC drama - worth a look) Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Adam Samberg light fluff) Sunderland 'Til I Die (football doc - worth a look for fans of the game)
