There are more and more students who want to study in Japan, and the international students who first came to Japan are looking forward to and worried about their Japanese level and worry about their life in Japan. As for language, there is no good way, is a "learn"; However, in terms of life, although you cannot experience it on the ground, you can first understand it deeply, and when you are really in a foreign place, you will not be so passive. The following Xiaobian will introduce the common sense that international students need to know when they first arrive in Japan.


New to Japan, there are many tricks to buying things. Because many vendors have different specifications and purchase channels, the price difference is very large. Therefore, in addition to the purchase of necessary items, other things can be put aside first, learn more about it, consult the seniors and then buy, do not rush to buy all.


In Japan, it is not only the major merchants and specialized electrical appliances that sell all kinds of electrical appliances. There is also a kind called medieval merchants, which are half or even more cheaper than new products. If you look hard enough, you might find something very unexpected.


Bicycles are one of the necessities of life for most students who have just arrived in Japan. In Japan, bicycles can also be bought medieval. But pay attention to where the country of production is, the best quality is Japan, followed by China. The new seven thousand or six thousand cheap goods are mostly third-rate goods in Vietnam, the Philippines and other places, and we must pay attention to the producing country when choosing. The Vietnamese and Filipino can last about half a year or so before going to overhaul or even replace a car. China's is not bad. It lasts about a year. The Japanese can generally last more than two years, but the price is also the most expensive, and the new car is at least more than 10,000 yen.


Even in the Middle Ages, you should ask the clerk in detail where the country of production of the bicycle is. He wouldn't dare lie to you. There's a law. I hope you can buy a good bike!


Finding a house is a big deal. If there is no fixed residence, it is a lot of trouble to handle the landing card, as well as the passbook. But finding an apartment is also a big problem. Choosing a house you like is not easy. School and friends will introduce some houses, but the selection is too small. After all, free stuff, the quality is still not very good. If you choose an intermediary. Then be aware that the agent will generally charge you a month's rent for the house you choose as the agent's fee. But also like mini, they only charge 50% of the fee.


In Japan, getting a haircut is an expensive activity. Basically, it's more than 3,500 yen. Therefore, it is a good way to save money to inquire in detail with seniors, find a cheap haircut, or discount for students.


Japan is very competitive now, there are all kinds of promotions, and there are a lot of special offers. Go to a few houses, maybe there will be an unexpected harvest. Moreover, it is not necessary to buy according to their specified price, many places can bargain. It is possible to reduce the price of the expensive ones or give the cheaper ones to you for free.


In Japan, cyclists and pedestrians are virtually left and right on the road. It's just, you usually go left when you're on the wrong bus. There are no bike lanes in Japan, so you have to compete with pedestrians. At the intersection, when there is no signal light, when encountering with the car, it is generally the car that lets the bicycle, and the bicycle lets the pedestrian. If the other person tells you to let you go first, don't let him back and forth, go directly to the better. But it's better to raise your hand and say thank you!


In Japan, there is time to go to the supermarket at night, maybe there will be bargains, many supermarkets are temporary price cuts, to close, some easy to break things have not sold out, they began to label price cuts, and some days are specific special days in the supermarket, there are designated things on sale that day, more cost-effective.
