    I've got a used k-car about 6 years old which cost around 500,000 yen if I remember correctly. Parking where I live in Chiba is around 15,000 yen a month. Cost to fill the tank is around 4,000 yen

    You can buy used car for good price. You can also look for online auctions.

    I think buying used car is a good option. but maintaining it, quite expensive. moreover if you live in Tokyo. you need to pay the parking lot Monthly, car inspection yearly.

    I moved here a year ago and I bought a 2003 Nissan Cube3 and so far absolutely no problems! I pay about $25 for gas every 1.5-2 weeks and that's driving to work every day! Travel time takes me 20minutes to get to work. If I'm going somewhere that requires parking I either ride my bike, take the train or find cheap parking lots that won't break my pockets. Some areas you can't avoid expensive parking. I am looking to sale my car simply because I don't really need it although it is convenient! I didn't have a car my first month here so I know that I can live without it!

    We bought a used car when we got ours. The biggest costs here in my opinion are insurance, and depending on where you live the necessity for things like snow tires. Since we live in snow country it was an absolute requirement for us to have snow tires, so things like that add to the cost. We live in a small town so where possible we try and walk or ride our bikes, so fuel costs aren't over the top.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
