I think you can live on that. Here's what I might spend in a month in yen.

Food 50,000 to 80,000
Utilities 40,000 to 50,000
Movies 2,000 to 3,000 a movie
Dinner 2,000 to 30,000

It's only a rough estimate though.

330,000 yen a month is good, you should do well, but becareful the companies in Japan say accomadations are paided but many time you will get to Japan and they take the rent from your salary, make sure you ask alot of questions and make everything clear before coming.
Good Luck

Don't know about taxes, but I agree with the previous poster. Pay attention to the details. Is it a Japanese company?
