Purchasing and Maintaining a Vehicle
Setting up Utilities
Your employer should help you set up your main utilities (water, gas and electric), but some of them could become your own responsibility.
Internet: There are a few services that can be utilized to set up your Internet. First, there is an English-speaking service BBapply that is very convenient. If you have moderate Japanese skills you can sign up for broadband in your local electronics store, like Nojima. You often can get good rebates and promotions if you sign up through retailers.
Cellular: Many places offer enrollment in cellular service. The most popular services in Yamanashi are AU and Docomo. You should first consult with your coworkers and friends to see who provides the best service in the area. You can enroll at most major electronics stores, company retail stores, and other retailers.
