I am willing to study in Iwate Prefectural University. I have to live there for approx 3-3.5 years. I want to know the cost of living there yearly
While Yuju's link is helpful, I think your ought to have a look at two posts that I wrote in my Cost of Living in Japan series for more details. Have a look at the cost of my utilities for one year in this post - http://www.trekkingwithbecky.com/cost-of-living-in-japan-utilities/ Although I'm in Kurashiki, which is far from Iwate, I think that the details I included will give you a better idea of what to expect when it comes to how much your utilties (gas, water and electricity) will cost you. I noticed that taxes aren't covered in the link, and since you'll be in Japan for more than a year, you'll have to pay the residential tax. Although the amount varies from city to city, it can cost you a lot. Have a look at this post - http://www.trekkingwithbecky.com/the-cost-of-living-in-japan-taxes/ Good luck with everything! :D
