Living Expenses


Cost of living in Tokyo is the highest in Japan, a country already known for its high cost of living. The average monthly expense (tuition fees not included) for UTokyo Graduate Students is between JPY 113,600 - 202,200. This will include an average rental fee of JPY 58,500, followed by the cost of food (JPY 31,600).

However, international students usually spend more on food (probably around 40,000 yen) due to the difference in the food available in Japan. Students who are accompanied by their family members should expect to pay approximately 1.5 to 1.6 times more in monthly living expenses.

Please plan your budget carefully so that financial worry will not prevent you from studying.
