So I've been planning my move to Japan for about 3 years now. I'm nearly finished with University, have just about enough money saved, and have been searching around on Gaijinpot for apartments.
I understand that it is a good idea to find a job and all that jazz, I'm just thinking about this question specifically.
If I were to hop on a plane tomorrow, with living accommodation already secured, and arrived in Tokyo. If my apartment had no furniture, would I just go find a department store and buy a futon? Or would I have to stick out the night with no bed? Sounds a bit silly, but I've been wondering about it for a while. Thanks!
