I'm searching for a sharehouse in Tokyo. For 3 month in mid-septembrer.
I'm struggling in my research. I would like not to pay more than 60000¥/month. Looks like it is impossible except in a dormitory...
Also, contract fee are too expensive, 30000¥ to 50000¥!
Any recommendations? @codewiz maybe?
@benoit The room where I stayed last year was 128,800¥ all inclusive. Arguably expensive, but clean and very central.
The Tentment social apartment was my second favorite choice and was much cheaper:
@codewiz I can't afford that much.
I will live on economy only and some baitos if I found them...
Also these share-house are for long term and move-in costs kill the short-term.
@codewiz They have insane contract fees ><
@benoit That's how they try to discourage people like you who want to stay medium-term, because... mendokusai!
@codewiz Yeah pain in the ass… My plan was to stay at some cities (Tokyo, Sapporo, Osaka, Fukuoka…) like one to 2 month each, but that will be complicated.
I'm gonna end my VWH trip bankrupted 😱
@benoit I just asked a friend who stayed in a super cheap room in the suburbs between Tokyo and Yokhohama. But his mattress was taking 2/3 of the total floor space, lol 🙂
@codewiz I saw some 5m²… In France the law say that the minimum living space is 9m².
@benoit then how about a capsule hotel 😂
@benoit If you pick a far away place to save on the rent, don't forget to include daily commuting costs in your budget.
@codewiz Yeah as commuting costs is expensive it may be a bad idea to live suburbs.
I already thought about that.
I may choose something near a language school.
@benoit Would be cheaper to just rent a room in some old lady's house... I could ask around for this if you're interested.
@codewiz For now I will explore sakura house, oak house and so on... Maybe I will finally found something.
I miss a good search engine for sharehouse :p
@benoit My landlord has a tech startup... He might be willing to offer you a cheaper room in exchange for free consulting. I think they use Google Cloud. Send me your resume if you're interested and I'll ask him.
@benoit I'm sure he'd take a gitlab/github account showcasing a few cool projects.
@benoit looks nice, I think my friend would like the format... but I'll wait until after you've updated it with your current skills.
@codewiz updated! I'm really not motivated to do a traditional resume though. I should explore a LaTeX template...
