LIFE & RESIDENCE
Nobody’s ever asked me if it’s expensive to live in Japan, or to visit, but only because they’re too sure to ask any questions. Instead, people tell me that being in Japan at all is much too expensive, more than most of the world by far, and that it’s one of the things ruling out living here or visiting.
Do you ever worry about having too many things you don’t need in your house? For example, clothes.
So, you’ve moved to a new country. You’ve found a job, an apartment, and a language teacher. You are on track… But is that all there is? What about having fun? What about dealing with stress of adjusting to all this huge life changes?
Do you prefer to pay with cash? Or do you prefer go cashless?
I’m in the latter camp.
Which is to say, I don’t feel that there’s much merit in using cash.
