Share house or cheap rent in Osaka

Hello guys!, I'm going to Osaka for studying Japanese language on this October, and I'm looking for cheap rent because I need to keep my cost down low as a student, so if you guys have any information about it please let me know, of course I will prefer to have a private or single room but if I have to share room to keep my cost down then I will. I'm looking for 20K - 35K yen/month rent (utilities included). I found couple of share house but most of it are written in Japanese so I translate it using google translate and I'm not sure if I get the right meaning, anyway I'm still looking for a place and it's urgen. Thank you! :)

    Great! You decided on Osaka. Nice choice. To be honest, searching English-language sites, it'll be difficult to find something for as little as 20,000 yen. 35,000 - 40,000 is more realistic, and this will probably be for a shared room. I've linked to some sites below .. 30,000 yen (including utilities), 20,000 yen deposit, dorm room ... http://www.jafnet.co.jp/plaza/en/?action_obj=Estate&action=detail&estate_code=6&room_code=1 Private room 30,000 yen, utilities 10,000 yen ... http://sharehouse.in/eng/house/room/1251/empty/ 25,000 yen, 5,000 utilities, 20,000 yen deposit, dorm room http://e-guest.jp/en/detail/index/osaka/224/ This site looks like it could be good ... http://www.guesthousebank.com/a_area/o_kansai/L_en/ This will be one for the future once you get on your feet ... http://abhousingosaka.com/ Osaka Craigslist might have some options. Be careful when you search, though. A lot of the rooms are for places outside of Osaka. http://osaka.craigslist.jp/search/roo Keep an eye on the magazine Kansai Scene. Something might turn up here ... https://www.kansaiscene.com/browse-categories/43/for-rent/ Also, have a look at Kansai Flea Market online. The classified ads for accommodation ... http://www.kfm.red/index.php/classifieds/1-accommodation Hope you find something.

    I realize that my answer is late, but just in case you're having trouble, have you thought of AirBnB? There is such a big variety of options and even if they're too expensive per month, you could probably find a good place to stay until you find a more permanent place to rent. You can get a discount toward your first stay at AirBnB from me if you sign up through this link - www.airbnb.com/c/bosawa?s=8 I hope you're managing. :D

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.
