It is hard to say if this is enough. This is a good amount of money, but depending upon where you end up living you could be pretty comfortable or just getting by.

Japanese apartments tend to be unfurnished, but student apartments might have some things. Japanese appliances/furniture can be expensive.

Japan has come a long way since the economic bubble. You can live very cheaply here if you are willing to go without. If you prepare your own meals, food can be very inexpensive. However, transportation is pretty expensive. Where I am, one-way subway tickets are at the minimum 200 yen. To get downtown, it is closer to 300 yen one way.
