Tuesday, May 26, Cheap Gaijin House in Osaka. There are various cheap housing options available in Japan: hostels, guest houses, capsule hotels, homestay families, dorms, et cetera.
Although I've never tried any of those, I did stay in a gaijin house for seven months. It was the perfect first home for me in Japan. In September of I came to Osaka for my exchange program, and wanted to get an apartment of my own. Not a dorm room where I'd have a curfiew, or a host family that I'd have to call everytime I wouldn't be back for dinner, but an affordable private room with no babysitting bullcrap or other annoyances.
Of course I had to sacrifice some things such as getting my laundry done by the host mom or getting two meals per day in the dorm cafeteria. But what I really wanted was a place that allowed me to be independent. No key money, deposit, personal seal, or guarantors were needed - everything was very simple and straightforward. The only downsides I can think of were the shower room and toilets that had to be shared among all lodgers, and I wasn't allowed to bring visitors to my room.
But I got used to it, so in the end everything was cool and I had nothing to complain about.
