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.

Any good tips for a Shimane visit?

I'm getting one of my New Year's Resolutions ticked off, and have a short trip planned to Shimane in late May. I'm going to visit Matsue, Izumo and Yasugi. Apart from the main to-do's there, does anyone have any experience with some off the beaten path spots? Cute cafes, interesting museums, anywhere you'd like to share?

Certificate of Eligibility

Hi there. So! The embassy of Japan has told me that if I want to have a long term visa I need (mandatory) a job and a certificate of eligibility and there's no way around this. The amount for working holidays is nearly 10 000 € and it's a lot. Any suggestions on how I can get a good job and a good presentation to have a job in Japan. I wanted to be a teacher.
