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!

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.
