I am former I.T. graduate turned vagabond. who traveled extensively, lived and worked in Japan for many years. First starting out on a working holiday visa, doing various jobs in the red light district of Shinsaibashi, Osaka. Then teaching English in kindergartens throughout the suburbs of Osaka, and teaching business men English in the cities of Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto and Nara. I have gained lots of insight and inside knowledge of the frugal lifestyle in Japan. Having learn t from other traveling vagabonds, struggling illegal immigrants, poor foreign English teachers, Ukrainian strippers, foreign hostesses, homeless Japanese, and the frugal saving mentality of the mainstream Japanese population.
