Will I save money living in Kamakura?

Answer this Question

We asked expats if they save money living in Kamakura. They said...

"The cost of living in Kamakura can be lower or higher than in the United States depending on the specific location in the U.S. you're comparing it to. For instance, living in Kamakura is likely to be more affordable than living in major U.S. cities like New York or San Francisco. However, it might be more expensive compared to smaller cities or rural areas in the U.S. Housing in Kamakura is generally less expensive than in major U.S. cities, but more expensive than in smaller towns. Food prices can be comparable or slightly higher, especially for western-style groceries. Eating out in restaurants can be more expensive in Kamakura, but there are also plenty of affordable options. Transportation costs in Kamakura are generally lower, thanks to efficient public transportation. Owning a car is not necessary for most residents, which can lead to significant savings. Healthcare in Japan is high quality and typically less expensive than in the U.S., even without insurance. However, the cost of private international schools, if you have children, can be high. In terms of entertainment, costs can vary. Some activities, like visiting historical sites and parks, are less expensive in Kamakura, while others, like movie tickets, can be more expensive. In conclusion, whether or not you'll save money by living in Kamakura, Japan compared to the United States depends on your lifestyle, where in the U.S. you're moving from, and what you consider to be essential expenses," said a member in Kamakura, Japan.
