Finances

We highly recommend that you plan your finances carefully so that you can fully enjoy your stay in Japan while sticking to your budget. Included are sample budget worksheets which you can use as guides.

If you are interested in applying for financial aid, browse through a starting list of scholarship program websites and financial resources.

It is also advisable to familiarize yourself with Japan’s currency, the Yen, as well as how banks operate in Japan. Dealing with money and counting in Yen might take some getting used to but you will soon get the hang of it.
