Salaries for living in Tokyo

Hello! I have looked at your other article called “Salaries for international developers working in Japan” Is software programming good enough to live successfully in Tokyo? Any advice on some good foreign companies that I could possibly work for in the future?

Well, the range for a developer is quite wide, so it depends on your expertise and experience.

Living ‘in’ Tokyo is pretty expensive though. You will have to make a compromise between commute times and a spacious room. Living little bit out of Tokyo, you can have a spacious room, but will have to endure longer commute times. Or you can live in central Tokyo close to your office, but do with a smaller room. It’s up to you.
