Does anybody know how much it costs to stay in Japan for about a week?

Next month, I'm going to take a trip to Tokyo, but I haven't decided where to stay yet, and I'm on a budget. I'm wondering how much it would cost to stay a week around a place like Harajuku, Shibuya?

    5000 - 10000 are basic budget for stay at hotel per day. so it cost will around 35,000 - 70,000. food ( breakfast / lunch / dinner ) minimum 2,000 - 4,000 per day at least. entertainment 2,000 - 4,000 per day. transportation 1,000 - 2,000 per day. hotel : 70,000 food : 28,000 entertainment : 28,000 transportation : 14,000 total : 140,000.

    Try Air BnB or hostels for cheap accommodation. On top of that, 5,000¥ per day will cover food, travel, and sightseeing. Raising your budget to ¥100,00 a day will let you experience more places that have higher entry fees, eat at restaurants, travel further, and buy souvenirs. If you want to go clubbing or shopping, budget a lot more.

    It depends where you will be going, where you will be staying or what modes of transpo you will prefer. But on a budget, I think around 70000-80000 yen will do considering that you'll stay in cheap accommodation and not ride the cab.

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.
