GPod Episode #11:
COST OF LIVING IN TOKYO
(WITH ACTUAL NUMBERS)
This week Anthony and Reno discuss the cost of living in stereotypically expensive Tokyo. It both is, and is not what you might think, and just because you can spend a fortune on the necessities of everyday life, it doesn't mean... well, have a listen to two young professionals breaking down what it takes to make it here in the metropolis.

For those abroad who might not be hip, GaijinPot is the portal for jobs, studying, and travel in Japan; statistically speaking, it's safe to say that pretty much all non-Japanese job seekers in Japan have browsed GaijinPot or posted a resume/CV on the site.
