Fukuoka Apartment Rental Costs 2018/1/14 23:03
Hi All,

There is a small chance that I might be living in Fukuoka later in the year. I used to live in Yokohama so am aware of the Yokohama/Tokyo prices from a couple of years ago.

I'm a single male that will be looking for a single/two bedroom apartment (50 m2) probably on the Subway Airport Line. Does anyone have any very general ballpark figures of how much apartments cost per month (in yen of course) so I've got an idea when I go for interviews....

I always found this page very useful to get a first impression as you can select a lot of conditions, such as heating, balcony...

I do not remember but there might be an English version of it.

Enjoy your life in Japan!

Thanks for the info everyone. It seems as though I should be able to get a reasonable place for around 100,000 yen a month - which is a lot cheaper than Yokohama and Tokyo. I'd be looking to stay for a while - 2 year contracts.

I'm aware of the costs of setting up are prohibitively expensive, but living in Japan is not that expensive once you set up. I also will now sleep on a good quality futon now after buying one for my last place in Japan....

Thanks for the kind words LikeBike.

I'm about to go to an International Teacher Job Fair in London later in the week. There are 600+ teachers attending with 160 schools from 60 or so different countries. Europe is my first choice - but a school in Fukuoka has contacted me for a possible interview. I've visited Fukuoka a couple of times and it's a very livable city.

Even though I have travelled around Kyushu and Chugoku, there are still plenty of places I still need to visit....
