It is also possible to live alone in an apartment near the school. If necessary, Fujiyama JLS will introduce you to a real estate agent.
In that case, in addition to the monthly rent, expenses such as a refrigerator, microwave oven, cooking utensils, tableware, beds, curtains, water charges, electricity charges, gas charges, internet fee, etc. will be incurred.
Students can look at these conditions and make choices.

Have you ever heard of the term “quality of life”?
Quality of life is determined not only by financial wealth, but also by how you spend your time and the relationships you have with others.
A part-time job in Tokyo may be able
to earn a little more than here. However, there are also significant lost costs such as rent and transportation.
Transportation cost is not only but also loss of travel time. And crowded trains can be physically and mentally tough. Please think about what kind of study abroad experience would be ideal for you.
The tuition fee and dormitory fee of FJLS is affordable and lower than other Japanese language school because we believe “money is time”. If tuition fees and rents are expensive then students have to engage in longer working hours to earn more money, resulting less time to study. Therefore, students at our school can study Japanese for longer hours and reach their goals.
Additionally, students will have less financial stress and they can also learn more of Japanese culture. We, at FJLS, believe providing reasonable school fees and dormitory fee is the best way to support our students.
