As internship is mostly supposed to be unpaid, that amount would probably be considered "daily allowance" rather than "salary." if you eat out, that might not be enough to cover your food bill. If you cook at home, you willie OK. What else do you need to pay yourself? Any phone bills, utilities, or something? Also be sure your accommodation comes with decent kitchen utensils and pots and pans (I'm saying because I have seen small studio apartment that came with minimum kitchen equipment.)

For temperature, check the "when to travel" section under Travel.

Are you doing one of those okinawan hotel internships? You'll probably be working so much you won't have time for spending lots of money...

my internship is at okhinawa institute of science and technology. can i have the best reliable source giving info about the price of vegetables, other utilities etc. is this daily allowance sufficient, so that i can have some savings, or kind of something for leisure trips or outings during weekend? and i also want to know about the expected tax in my case, so that i can finalise a decision whether or not this economical.
