    I can tell you when I get there. I am off to Japan in August after accepting a job offer. Looks an amazing country. People did tell me it was more expensive but looking forward to a new country and a new opportunity.

    Japan can be expensive, but it is an amazing country and well worth it. If you shop smart, groceries can be reasonable and eating out need not be outrageous for great food.
    The train system in Tokyo is excellent and relatively inexpensive. National healthcare is also very good with reasonable costs.
    If you are at good school, then you should be fine to live a good life and still save some money.
