Prey tell dear boy what job you actually have?
500k per month is more than enough, many people survive on half that and still have a good time.

500,000 yen a month is more (double in many cases) than what most English teachers make, but on the low side for someone working in finance or IT- in those fields that is entry level.

Also if you want to live in Minato-ku, a very expensive area, it may not be enough as a tiny one room apartment in those areas usually goes for around 200,000 yen, so if you want anything bigger...

500,000 is certainly enough to live off in Tokyo but it depends on what your outgoing expenses are!

Hi Vikas,

500,000 yen is definitely more than enough. The average salary in Tokyo is around 250,000 to 300,000 per mth.

Just wandering what will you be doing to achieve that target? Care to share some info?
