    There are guarantor companies here in Japan. I had to get one for my apartment. Cost is around 25,000 yen for 2 years. Paid all up front when you sign up for it. Don't ask me anything else about it because that's literally all I know...I don't even know the name of the company.

    There is no straight answer for that. The figure will depend on how much you want to borrow and on the bank's policies. Generally speaking, they look at your general financial health - long term savings, investments, credit history etc. For a foreigner they look at your history here too and you may need to have permanent residency to borrow.

    I didn't have to pay for a guarantor because I just used my employer and/or my close friend when I needed one for my apartments. They have to be Japanese citizens. Not sure if that helps or not. :(

    Hi Klous, Based on the types of questions you've been asking in the forum, I wonder if you've looked at hiring a relocation company to help you with your transition to Japan? I can't say they're all sunshine and roses to work with, but a relocation package through one of these companies (there are so, so many different relo companies in Japan!) can help you navigate the ins and outs of a VERY particular, paperwork and rules focused government to get bank accounts, finding housing, drivers license conversion, getting an ETC card and rail-pass, recommending resources like Japanese language classes, and registering with your local ward. They have native and non-native Japanese speakers, and are well versed in how what a foreigner needs to get on their feet here. I wonder if any other members of this forum have experience with these sorts of companies who can chime in?

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.
