a MEXT scholarship recipient coming to Tokyo
Posted June 21st, 2012 - 2:36 pm by from Kawasaki, Japan (Permalink)
Hey Everyone,

My name is Ekin Basalp(from Istanbul, Turkey). the day before i learnt that i was selected as MEXT (Japan Government scholarship) recipient and admitted to MSc program at Tokyo Tech. Therefore, imma begin a new life in Tokyo starting from this October until 2014 summer at the earliest. As im like a very fresh rookie about the life in Japan, I would like to ask you about possible trustworthy internet sites through which I can rent an apartment. Or do you have cheaper/better suggestions that I can keep in mind?

I would really appreciate your reccommendations if you happen to share some:)

Hi Ekin,

A friend of mine suggested Sakura House et Oak House. She went to Japan 3 times and is now living there, so I guess you can trust her :)

I'm moving to Tokyo next October for 3 months internship.

Hey Roxane,

Sorry for my belated answer. I was on a long trip and finding an internet connection was not easy for me. Meanwhile, I read so many info about Tokyo. Im very glad I could get many great answers as you did. Thank you very much!
