    You couldn't possibly afford to go out drinking everynight on a jet salary

    How much drinking would you intend to do anyway?

    I guess you technically could, but it would probably leave you very tight money wise. I spend anywhere from $40-$70 a night, depending on the quantity and quality of course. Come to think of it though, I would rarely spend more than 3000 or 4000 yen when I was in Kyoto.

    I saved $42,000 while in Japan, largely thanks to sending the bulk of my money home when the yen was at 78-82 to the dollar, and working some extra high-pay jobs (business eikaiwa), but the rest of you are probably fucked.

    true that, I did 5 years on jet not saving a penny but once the exchange rate hit that magic number I paid my student loans off in 8 months
