    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!!)

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.

Cheap galleries in Kanto for an exhibition?

Anyone in the art community know of somewhere to exhibit art for cheap (or free)? I'm looking to host a short-term photo show. I'm looking for a very small space (even just a wall is fine) for around 10,000 a day (or less, obviously). Thanks!
