#Willingl on Jan 27, 2016 :
I have been living in Japan for 5 years. I'm living with my wife and 2 kids, one is 8 year old and the other is 3. I can get ~640,000 per month (after tax) and arround one million yen bonus per year. But how to say,... I can not save too much if I only rely on my salary. I rent a apartment (~60 square meter) near Yokohama station and it cost me ~140,000 per month. The nursery school for taking care of my small kid takes me ~70,000 per month. I spend lots on food, drinking,... actually I do not remember where I spend my money but finally I can only save little. Luckily my wife is also working so that she can save.

These prices are acutally not too far off. The thing you have to remember when looking at them is the bottom and top dollar. For example, rent of a one bedroom apt, 50k is truly the bottom dollar for a 20 m2 room unless you want to sacrifice your shower.

One thing to consider if you are planning on owning a car. PARKING. Apartment parking is not free. Usually ranges between 15 to 25k in Yokohama.
#rks on Sep 03, 2015 :
based on my expereince specially if you are form india kindly follow this a s thumb rule;

1. salary in yen should be 4 times salary in inr in India. if you have 10,000,00 INR = 40,000,00 JPY
2. In yokohama Tokyo 50 m2 apartment ranges from 100000 to 200000 yen
3. Monthly ration + utility + train fair with 2 ppl with 2 non school going kids = 100000 yen min
4. for two kids the int school fee/year will be 1000000 jpy

it depends how much you save in india. if you save in india 20000 INR month then in japan you must save 40000 inr or 90000 jpy otherwise why you will leave your country and come so far where the language is big blow for you.

so in nut shell :
monthly expenses - 100000 rent +100000 school +100000 ration + 50000 extra = 350000
adding 90000 = 430000/month, 5.2 mn yen /year should be the minimum salary.

for any queries plz send qs to netorders234@gmail.com
