I live in Nagoya, Japan. These prices do not reflect reality. For example, the utilities for my 2 bedroom apartment are 30 USD a month using a/c in the summer 16 hours per day.

What is assumed for the "Family of four estimated monthly costs"? Does it include 1 or 2 cars, car insurance, travel allowance, eating out couple of times a month...or is it just basic utilities and groceries? Thanks in advance.
