    Hi VinR, It really depends on what city are you planning to live. In general 30 thousand yen for a 1 room apartment that is 15 minute walk from the station. When you say living modestly, I expect you will cook by yourself most of the time, so it will cost around 30 to 40 thousand yen. If you want to get cheaper food you can buy it just before the store closed, at that time most of the supermarket have 50% off for the soon expire product. Housing: 30k ~ 50K (old and far away from the station- 15min walk) Utility Bill: 10k food: 30k Transportation: 20k Total estimate for minimum monthly cost: Around 90K yen Remember that you need to pay apartment deposit and contract free when you rent a house, around 2 months worth of the apartment monthly cost. You should prepare at least 150k to 200k for the first month.

    Your best option would probably be FUKUOKA INTERNATIONAL HOUSE. It's an apartment building with English speaking staff who can help you adjust to life in japan. It's very affordable. After you become proficient in Japanese, I would recommend trying to rent a regular apartment, which could be even more affordable (around 10,000yen per month!!)

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!

Trip to Miyazaki this summer. Any recommendations?

Heading to Miyazaki, Kyushu this summer (4 nights, staying in Aoshima). Any recommendations on places to eat would be much appreciated. Also, any sightseeing spots? The priority is surfing but we'll have a car and will still have time to travel around a bit. Cheers!
