you can live anywhere in japan its a safe country

its hard to live in japan considering u gotta have a visa no matter what (student visa, work visa, even marriage visa)
they are very very tuff on people who wish to become a japanese citizen
you would have to renounce your usa citizenship
its a very looong process

if your not very fluent in japanese i say go to tokyo coz its very mixed
but its very hard to find a place to stay, i see alot of foreigners workin here and there compared to naywhere else

i live in tokyo but i have my own place, i got hooked up by my freinds and work
for real i love osaka more than any other city

i dunno why, its just cozy


if u wanna go there, u should look into programs that send u over to japan to teach english or whatnot, they accomodate you well
^O^


peace

It depends on how much you're willing to spend on a "really nice crib", I've been living in Kawasaki, a half hour train ride from Shibuya for 4 years. The area I live is pretty quiet and as it's classed as Kawasaki the rent is pretty cheap compared to Tokyo.

If you're looking for somewhere nice to live in the Tokyo area then look at places like Setagaya, Chofu, Jiyugaoka, Ebisu etc. The rent is sky high though.

What kind of area are you looking for? Urban or more countryside?

I pay 80,000 yen a month for my place, I've seen apartments with rent over 1,000,000 yen a month in some areas. I'll let you google the exchange rates ;)

I checked the currency and got myself a general idea, but you know it depends a lot the size of the place ... how big are the apartments for that rent?

I just checked out the Roppongi Hills website, if you click the link below and go through the availability link you'll see the price range for an apartment is from 750,000 yen to 3,700,000 yen, you'll be able to find the sizes on the website

man thats crazy!!!
i live in like kobe and i pay like 50,000 yen a month
and its pretty big room
ive been here for like 4 - 5 years too

i think u have to pay like a 'thank you fee' to the owner of the place


my cousin lives in tokyo but......its the toshimaen station (oedo line)
he pays like 55,000 yen a month
you should check that area, its pretty quiet and pretty close to everything else like akihabara etc

Square Enix registers new trademarks; Front Mission lives (http://squarehaven.com/news/2006/07/05/Square-Enix-registers-new-trademarks-Front-Mission-lives)
http://squarehaven.com/news/images/fm5_guy.PNGSquare Enix has registered the name Monster Battle Road with the United States patent office; a clear reference to a Dragon Quest VIII (http://squarehaven.com/games/ps2/dq8) minigame of the same name. It is likely that this title will be a US port of the Japanese Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker. More interestingly, the subtitle "Scars of the War" has been published for opposition, which means as long as no one else sues for property of a common phrase, Front Mission 5 (http://squarehaven.com/games/ps2/fm5) may actually get a stateside release.

I live on a pretty expensive line but my place is cheap in comparison to anything else around here the same size. My wife and I live here and we have plenty of space, we've looked at apartments in other areas but they were more expensive.

I have friends in cheaper apartments but I wouldn't really want to live there, they're pretty small.

wooooahh didnt know u were married
that must be a big place u got...coz japanese like their space
its hard to crash at someones place in japan coz the rooms are too small if your livin alone
it sound like u got a good cib...good job homie:hooray:

my room size is decent
it holds all my records..even got my own parking space(for my mopad)...theres a mini gym i got from the trash (its amazing what u can find..even got a 32' tv that still works perfectly)

its good if your livin single, maybe 3 people could sleep over one on the couch and the other in the bathtub lol

yo did u have to pay the owner of the place a 'thank you fee' or the 'courtesy fee'
like u pay it once ...man i forgot what its called in japanese

chiba, aren't you japanese yourself? or do you just live there?

AHHH thats the tricky part
my dad is born in okinawa but my grandfather is peruvian
my grandad went to okinawa to work and he married a japanese lady (my grandma)

i currently live in kobe (near the baseball stadium) which is very close to osaka
i dj in osaka at club pure and sometimes at this other club
i used to live in osaka for a bit, but the area i was in was very sketchy

i have cousins that live in tokyo so i go there from time to time
for gigs at like club atom or harlem...one time i hooked up with mighty crown and did a gig at a reggae club (unity)

tokyo is pretty good coz theres alot of hip hop acts
like 1 month ago blackmoon and smiff n wessun came to tokyo


how about you??

was it in the summer time??
for real meng i try to stay away from that place
i went there to see a friend of mine who djs at club gas panic
it wasnt as littered when i went but if your comparing roppongi to other places in tokyo then your absolutely right

its full of sketchy people, but i ate at one resto there and it was really good

theres just too much foreigners for my liking

how long did you stay in tokyo for??

I don't live in Japan
lol

if you're asking about my past, I have a family of travelers so I'm comprised of 5 mixed nationalities

how much do they pay you for a gig there?

chiba
01-24-2008, 11:09 PM
ok so i pretty much get like 500$ per gig (reason why is coz i got the hook up for good music, plus i was well known in south africa and canada for djing)
plus i get free drinks
sometimes i work as a bouncer
so sometimes i dj then when my sets are done ill go and bounce
then help clean the place with the workers when the party done at like 6 or 7 am
sometime work as a translator


if its vip they usually have me at the door so nobody breaks in
sometimes i bring drinks to high profile clientele ...i keep the tip at the end of the night
coz they aint supposed to tip (in japan wherver u go you dont leave tip coz its included in the price)

theres alot of jobs here in japan for foreigners
u can get a job easily in roppongi
but i recommend findin a program where u can teach english
im lookin into that, they pretty much pay you and lodge you
so its not sooo soo bad

i say go for it if your single and have nothing to lose

u should come to japan

it honestly depends on who your working for
but for real they get paid pretty well
almost like lawyers or doctors in some cases

u should check it out
go to the nearest japanese embassy where u live and ask them about programs that send u to teach english in japan

you pick like the 3 places where u want to go teach (ex tokyo, yokohama, osaka)
if all 3 are full they give u other options (kobe, fukuoka, nagoya, hiroshima etc)

like i said its pretty good job
you can be in japan for 1 yr up to 5 yrs
just be sure your ready to escape your area :thumbup:

^O^:yes:

for real meng, you should seriously consider it
you have nothing to lose and alot to gain
u get paid well
u get your own place (so u dont have to go around looking for a place)
the work isnt all that hard
the management treats you well
plus
its a different society..everyone here is very respectful and you feel safe on the streets 24hrs a day

japan is great, i love it here and i do whatever i can to stay here
i dont feel like goin back to monreal canada (the friggen hell hole)

much luck!!
