comment How to get rid of Argentinian Peso before leaving the country?
Umm... the official rate would be VERY GOOD if you want to change Pesos to Dollars. Which is why you won't get it anywhere, that's the whole point.

comment how much money do I need to spend in Tokyo, Japan for a living
@183.amir: It depends on how far the commute is, whether or not you're a student, and for how long you take the ticket. And even if they don't directly help you to find an apartment, they may have useful advice or contacts.

comment how much money do I need to spend in Tokyo, Japan for a living
The area is right next to the imperial palace in central Tokyo. Living there is out of the question, so plan for a lengthy commute - a seasonal ticket will cut your commuting costs roughly in half (more if you're astudent). Can the institute arrange accommodation for you? That would simplify matters, and may also be cheaper. Rental contracts tend to include very high one-off fees, though there are companies that target foreigners. Whether you can find accommodation for less than 100k JPY will be the decisive factor. If you're frugal, food should be about 1k JYP per person per day.

@sawa: we may be thinking about different age ranges. I meant toddlers, not teenagers.

comment Is it rude to give up your seat in Japan?
@FranciscoPresencia: older women can be notoriously unabashed and might well do it, but what I was really thinking of is that someone else would call you out, thus taking the role of "enforcing social norms" (or maybe "educating the gaijin") rather than "requesting privilege".

@LightnessRacesinOrbit I believe the point (with which I somewhat agree) is that this kind of polite behaviour is pretty universal in modern societies and thus it doesn't really matter where the question or the answer is from. Only the details vary.

comment If you have a rental car from outside Germany, can you enter the environmental zones?
@andra: No, I'm saying that foreign rental agencies which allow their cars to be taken into Germany will provide such papers.

@Gagravarr: if you don't have them with you, you'd actually be breaking another German law.
