Why Living In Japan So Expensive ?

Because the cost of living is high including living in Japan, internet kiosks not only function to surf the internet, some people make it a place to live because the cost of living is so high. For the size of most Indonesians, living in Japan is indeed unusually expensive.

How come? For example, Fumiya, a 26-year-old man who works as a security guard. According to his confession, Fumiya has a high income for the size of Indonesian people, which is in the range of 230 thousand yen per month or around Rp. 24 million.

Quoted from Disposable Workers, Tuesday (03/24/2015), the salary was apparently small in Japan. Especially in the capital city of Tokyo, which costs life insanely. So Fumiya currently chooses to stay in an internet cafe at a cost of around USD 750 per month.

In a cafe, he can surf the internet or play games as much as he can. He also does not need to spend additional costs such as electricity, water or cleaning.

Living in an internet cafe for him is a realistic choice. The problem was he said, to rent a pretty good apartment in Tokyo, it would cost up to USD 13 thousand in advance for rent, deposits and so on.

Moreover, his work as a security guard is still vulnerable because he is not a permanent employee. So, he wanted to find a better job with a mission to no longer live in an internet cafe.( source : agen taruhan bola )

According to a survey by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, around 5,400 Japanese lived in internet cafes in 2007. About half were unemployed, the rest were mediocre.

In Jakarta, taxis are ordinary public vehicles that are affordable to the upper middle class, different from those in Tokyo, the most populous metropolitan city in the world.

Taxis include luxury vehicles because of the expensive rates. A taxi is rarely found at Narita International Airport, because the middle age of Narita-Tokyo can spend 30,000 yen - 40,000 yen or around Rp3.5 million - Rp.5 million.

Meanwhile, if you use a bus, the most served by Airport Friendly Limousines, it costs 3,000 yen or around Rp.350,000 per person. Getting on the train is cheaper, only 1,000 yen or around Rp119,000.

According to Liana, there are three expensive things in Tokyo, namely the scope or space, labor, and transportation.

The average place to live in Tokyo, like an apartment, is small and often has no place to park. Parking fees can reach 600 yen per hour.

Site houses in Tokyo also often do not have parking spaces, because people prefer public transportation.

The second is human labor. As an illustration, a can of coffee on a vending machine is sold for 120 yen, but if sold in a cafe with human services it can reach 300 yen - 400 yen.

Today in Japan there are many automatic machines that replace human power because they are cheaper. "Whatever uses high human power. We rarely see unemployed people, everyone is busy because if they don't work there will be no left-handers who help," he said.

The third expensive thing is transportation or vehicles that are also related to space. Mass transportation is the solution in Japan.

At rush hours that often occur when workers leave, 1 square meter on the train can be packed with 15 people.

The passenger density of the train is sometimes used by prank men by sexually abusing the train. However, the Japanese government is very protective by implementing special laws.

Men caught in action on the train can be brought to court and asked for compensation, reaching 200,000 yen. The money was handed over to the victims.

The perpetrators of sexual harassment will also be immediately dismissed from the company where they work because they are considered to have committed a shameful act.

There are times when the law is used by women who seek money by accusing people of committing acts of sexual abuse. According to Liana, cases like this can be quite interesting stories in Tokyo.
