You probably have this idea that Tokyo is a super expensive place to live or visit. Having lived here for most of the last 10 years, I beg to differ. I’m the co-founder of Tokyo Cheapo, so as you’d expect I’m a fan boy for minimalism, living within one’s means and the Mr Money Mustache way. However Tokyo is not expensive, at least not like London, Paris or San Francisco. I’m living the good life without even trying that hard to scrimp and save.
