Tokyo Rentals Guidebook for Foreigners & International Students (III)

(III) Will it be inconvenient if I live outside of Tokyo?

Many people choose to live outside of Tokyo for various reasons, the location of schools or companies, high rents in Tokyo, or they prefer a quiet environment. When living outside of Tokyo, however, they worry that it has inconveniences.

In fact, you don’t need to worry about it. Students who have lived in Japan for a period of time should have discovered that it is very convenient even you are not living in Tokyo. You could find support facilities including supermarkets, convenience stores, drugstores, post offices and banks everywhere.

In addition, Tokyo’s public transportation system is extremely convenient. There are multiple routes with a rapid transit system. A rapid train ride costs equally to one local train ride. The only difference is that rapid trains skip a few stops in comparison to the local one, which makes their time of arrival notably shorter.
