I currently live outside of Sapporo. On average, Hokkaido has the lowest cost of living in Japan... except for utilities, electricity and heating oil are amazing... in all the bad ways. I'm in an apartment with my family, we leave about a third of it closed off almost all the time, and still we have had as high as 25000 yen heating oil bills this last winter. We're talking 25,000 yen to keep tops about 40 square meters warm for a month -- and we don't run the heater after we go to bed, either! 25000 yen is unusual for us but I expect oil costs to go up, not down. Electricity is around 10000 yen a month, although that may be because we have a computer, a microwave/oven hybrid, etc. Increase in utility cost is one of the biggest things eating into my budget.

Expect far lower-than-average rent for Japan, much lower than average food costs (I spend about 700 yen per kg for chicken breast), and then make sure you're ready for those awful winter heating bills. Many older (and less insulated) houses have to shut off their water at night to make sure the pipes don't freeze and explode, and everyone has plenty of blankets!

Hi there.
Sapporo is my home town.
I live in Victoria BC Canada now.

Sapporo is one of the most beautiful city especially in summertime.
Wide landscape and woods are similar in Canada.
There are so many nice hot springs located within one hour drive.
Much snow in winter from Dec to March.
But in the city center, lots of mechanical snow remover work at midnight,
so that traffic jams are not so bad.
