    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!!)

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.
