Be advised that day-to-day living costs in Japan may be more expensive than you expect. Have enough money for a problem-free stay.

Textbook Information


As textbooks differ depending on your classes, it is difficult to estimate the actual cost. However, they usually come up to approximately ¥10,000.

Other charges


Himeji Dokkyo University is always making efforts to improve its exchange program. As such, although we have tried to inform you as much as possible here about the charges that will be incurred during your stay, this is not a complete list and new charges may apply during your stay. We will keep you informed of any new charges that may occur. However, please be aware that if any new charges (or increases in existing charges) occur, you are obliged to pay these. This is a condition of your participation in this exchange program.

Your Visa and the Certificate of Eligibility


To enter Japan, you must obtain a student visa from your nearest Japanese Embassy or Consulate. To be granted this visa, you first need a “Certificate of Eligibility”. Himeji Dokkyo University applied for this certificate on your behalf and sent materials to you so that you can apply for the visa.

About national health insurance


It is compulsory for students who stay in Japan(excluding half-term student) to join the National Health Insurance. Please make all payments at the beginning. After a student joins this insurance, he/she pays only 30% at a hospital in the case of sickness or injury. If he/she is an overseas student, he/she can get a further discount.

About the defrayals such as the sicknesses and the injuries


While in Japan, under no circumstances will the host university pay for costs incurred due to sickness or injury. Those students who have the National Health Insurance Scheme need only pay 30% of medical costs, but students not covered by this insurance must pay the entire cost, in some cases, a very large amount. It is important to inquire to what extent medical insurance from your home country will cover you in Japan. Please insure you have sufficient funds to pay any medical expenses.

About the preparation for prices and the cost of Japan

日本の物価は想像以上に高く何につけてもお金がかかります。 特に渡日したばかりで生活が落ち着くまでには、当初支払わなければならない費用もたくさんあります。奨学金でまかなう予定にしていても、この奨学金は自分の都合のよい時に振り込まれるわけではありません。費用面では余裕をもって準備してきて下さい。特にアパートの費用は前月の月末までに大学に納めなければなりませんので、注意してください。

Prices in Japan are often unimaginably high and the cost of living is very expensive.
In particular, what you pay when you first arrive in Japan and as you settle in, are considerably large. Even those students with scholarships often find that the scholarship installments are not in time to make certain payments. Please prepare sufficient funds for this purpose. Please also be aware that homestay payments must be made by in advance by the end of the previous month.

About the use of the cellular phone


In Japan, mobile telephones have become very popular. They are convenient and cheap.
Mobile phones can be used for instant contact between staff at the International Centre and exchange students, as well as keeping in contact with friends. Therefore we advise every exchange student to purchase a mobile telephone as soon as possible after arrival in Japan.
