    That is so exciting!!  Actually, one of our members – @bookman – just started a one year program here as well, so he is an expert on coming here to study!  (I came here 11 years ago, so it is a lot fuzzier in my mind. 🙂 )

    I would recommend bringing your own wheelchair as you may not be able to get one quickly that would meet your needs, and renting would cost you around 30,000 yen / month.  I can introduce you to a place to rent a hoist.  Until you are registered in the system, you will need to pay for it out of pocket.

    Re: apartment, I guess it depends where your school is and how far you plan to commute – Tokyo is a very large city!
