Living in Hiroshima

Living in Hiroshima

Consumer prices in the prefecture have stayed stable with the recent low inflation rate, but goods are still quite expensive compared to other Asian countries. The average monthly living expenses for a single international student in Hiroshima are about ¥100,000, excluding tuition.


International students at Shudo usually choose from two housing options: to stay at one of the international student houses or to find private accommodation. Apartments are usually unfurnished in Japan. A student should expect to buy bedding, kitchenware, and other essentials. The University’s International Affairs Center or a real estate agent will help the student find an apartment or a room for rent. The tenant is required to pay an initial deposit of 2-3 months’ rent, some or all of which will be returned when the accommodation is vacated.
