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

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
