2 month stay in Sapporo

2 month stay in Sapporo


I'll be studying Japanese for 2 months in Sapporo. The school is next to the Nishi 18 Chome subway station. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here had any advice on where to stay long term. I'm thinking of staying at weekly sapporo (http://weeklysapporo.com/weeklysapporo.html). Any other ideas on relatively inexpensive long stay hotels?

Have you thought about a homestay?

If you look at Kokusai Plaza's website


They have homestay info for foreign students...Kokusai Plaza is a great connector for people living here and they'll hook you up with a family - then you can get to use your Nihongo every day with your hosts!

The other idea if you are coming in summer is to stay at someone's place while they are out of country during the long summer holidays - university and school teachers - foreign staff often go back to home countries...and need someone for watering plants and feeding fish...

There is a mailing list called Hokkaido Insider, run by a local teacher called Ken Hartman...if you contact him he might post that kind of request on his list for you -

I think there's a youth hostel out by that subway station.
