Cost of living in Japan can be very expensive or it can be very cheap depending on your spending habits. Moreover, what kind of Part-time Job and how many hours of Part-time Job you are doing. On an average a student can earn 12 to 15 maan (1 maan is 10000yen) per month if he keeps himself in the range of 28 hours a week allotted by Japanese embassy the For example for an Indian Student If he teaches English at the rate of 2000 yen per hour, it can be around 20maan a month controlled under Embassy law of 28 hours if he has permit with him. So the whole algorithm goes around your own calculation. Keep on reading to understand all about savings and job salaries while you make most of it in Japan. As I mentioned earlier also that cost of living in Japan also may vary according to your spending habits like if you party very much and spend on girls, beer, discos, bars and on chicken it will drastically show you no profits. On the other hand if you make a balance between your job and enjoyment in Japan it will result you in good savings and excellent enjoyment with all the Japanese language learning and the cultural learning that will help you eventually in getting a high salary job in Japan after completion of your Japanese language course.
Schools in Japan charge a tuition fee and a number of other smaller fees like insurance, registration cost, tuition cost, material cost, taxes, accommodation processing charges, Job processing charges, introduction fees and many other hidden charges. So its really important to clear this all matter with your processing institute while discussing the fee. Usually one year course at a Japanese language school costs approximately 900000 Yen, excluding living costs such as accommodation, food and travel etc. Senmon Gakko costs approximately twice as much but prices differ from school to school.
For the living expenses, if you study in other city where the accommodation and travel costs are low you might get by on less, but in Tokyo it is easy to spend much more especially if you live in your own apartment.
Many people think that Japan is expensive but this is not entirely true. Shopping and food are often cheaper than in Europe, not least considering the quality that you get. Student accommodation, on the other hand, can be a bit costly in Tokyo considering the size and standard that you get.
