Monthly family cost in Yamagata shi, Japan

Greetings, How much is required monthly (per person) to live without any worries? Including Japanese language courses. Are foreign students (elementary through university) well accepted in Yamagata schools? Many thanks!

    Hi There! There's some information about living in Yamagata at the resource on the website here https://www.city-cost.com/stats/yamagata. I can't comment about Yamagata personally, since I've only traveled there and not lived there, but I live in Niigata just below it. Our rent here is inexpensive (58,000 yen a month for a 6DK) but the real kicker is utilities - it still gets super humid in summers here and naturally the winters are next level with the snow etc - and I imagine that side of things would be the same in Yamagata. Our heating bill last month was on par with our rent. As for foreign students, my husband studies here and has found it to be very welcoming, and our daughter also goes to school here. So far, so good in that regard - I would be hoping the same would be true in Yamagata!

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.
