    Hi! I’m actually attending Nanzan in the fall through ISEP. Your blog has been really helpful in getting ready to go. I did have one question though. The 30,000 yen stipend that they give you–does that have to cover rent at the dorm as well? If so, do you have enough money left over for food? Should I plan on bringing extra for that? thanks for any help you can offer.

    Hey, it does not cover rent at the dorm. My program charged me the rent fee in the program fee itself so the stipend is just for living expenses.
