Cost of life in Tokyo

I get asked a lot about the cost of life in Japan. It is not cheap but did you know

  • Norway is by far way more expensive on a daily basis, food, restaurants, transports
  • Tokyo is “only” the #10 most expensive city in rent, places like Hong Kong, Boston, New York, Paris or London are way more expensive

I find energy and utilities to be very expensive, mobile phone is outrageous and the government is actually addressing this as the major networks have abusing for years

Food is actually ok-ish!

Metro is ok too, trains are expensive so as trains (similar system to mobile, they make the most of their monopoly)
