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
