You might even partake of the one thing all Japanese people dream of—a trip out of Japan.For long-term ex-pat life in Japan (and especially Tokyo), this is the minimum acceptable living wage.Your cell phone will be a flip type from the 1990’s.Treat yourself to a can of malt liquor once a week; you’ve earned it.

But unless you come to Japan as half of an already-established couple, you’ll have to buy your own refrigerator, washing machine, lamps, pots and pans, everything. Might be a good time to get a part-time job at Family Mart.

For weekend entertainment, go to the corner park and sit on the swing-set drinking 100-yen cups of shochu.

Foreigners think it’s amusing that the toilet seats are heated, but if you had to use the bathroom at two a.m. That’s how you’ll feel when you come home to your apartment with one and a half actual rooms and run the heat or A/C as necessary.
