From local Japanese budget furniture shop/ PC shop: low-medium quality,
*A double bed 30-50k
*A raido with CD,MD and tape 10-15k
*A tv - 14" 10k
*A PC - 150k
*A couch - 10-20k
*Dig. Camera 15-30k
* good blankets and pillows etc... 10-15k
* A fridge - 15-20k
*a coffee table - 10-15k
*a chair to use when using the PC 5k
1k -1,000 JPYen
But consider using futons, not a bed; small fridge only, as many convenience stores around; secondhand items abound, or from sayonara sales; etc..
But would not bother until you get here and see for yourself - any budget you make will go to pot after a few nights out!

*A double bed 20,000-40,000 yen
*A raido with CD,MD and tape 10,000 yen
*A tv (what size?) 10,000 - 150,000 yen
*A PC (what bells and whistles?) 200,000 yen
*A couch 20,000 yen
*Dig. Camera 100,000 yen
* good blankets and pillows etc.. (Do you REALLY need prices on these everyday items?).
* A fridge 50,000-70,000 yen
*a coffee table (see comments about blankets)
*a chair to use when using the PC (same as above)
By the way, most employers provide basic necessities. You can get lots of secondhand stuff easily, too, sometimes for free.

And better check the size of your room/ apartment, before you plan on filling it with stuff!
And "Glenski" - Kanagawa and Hokkaido seem to be about the same cost!
