I’ve made it to Japan with basically no questions asked by immigration, with a budget of about $200/mo ($600/88days). I’ve booked myself 1-2 hostel stays per week after the first week or so is over. Any tips when it comes to Tokyo?

How much do those micro motel room/sleeping cubicles cost? You know what im talking about? Its barely bigger than a doghouse. Theres room for one person to lay down, you cant stand, you have a tv n some power points for your entertainment/charge your electrical devices and bugger all else
Yeah I would look into to those micro sleeping cubicles, I've heard that they're cheap. I also would look into 24 hour internet cafes, I remember seeing a documentary about someone living in one, I think you get your own room or cubicle area for some of them. Try fining a Buddhist temple, I've heard that some will put you up and feed you if you offer to do some work for them. I hope things go well for ya. I've been planning on going to Japan for years and I'd love to hear whatever tips you learn that you can pass on.
Ooooh, this was very good! I'm definitely gonna watch the rest, thanks for sharing! I've also heard from a few people who have gone there over the years basically the same thing reflected in this video; that it's remarkably easy to sleep rough and hitch. It's not too hard to hide to sleep, but I've also heard several tales of people just sleeping in pubic (doorways, park benches, etc) in major cities with no real problems.
this is some relevant content for anyone tryin to go to Japan. There are some parts with this guy hitchhiking and sleeping rough, it's worth a look. I'm not in love with his character revealed through narration, but take what you like. All of his videoes are (imho) VERRRRY well edited and concise
