    hello Divya/Seema
    I live about 30 min Minato-Mirai line train ride from Yokohama. I go to Kamata grocery store. I would actually recommend going to Kamata Sunrise Shopping street for vegetables. They are fresh, sold by the growers and cheaper than what you find in stores. If you buy six or more items, you would probably recover the cost of train ride. You should also consider the shopping as an entertaining ttrip to watch the natives as well as an immersion experience in learning the culture via window shopping or browsing.
    After a year in Japan, I am now able to speak a little. Indians should be able to identify with this idea; after all, I know telugus and tamils who move north and after the begin with a few stock phrases they go on to learn more and more as each day goes on.
    Watch a lot of TV when ever time permits and GO OUT and see/hear real people in the street.
    best wishes,
    Krishnan
    P.S. It would be good if you can post here after you arrive.

    Hi Seema,

    Greetings to you all!!

    My husband and I may be relocating to Yokohama by Aug 09, and we just have no idea of what to make of Yokohama. But reading your posts, it does seem like a nice place with n pretty sizeable Indian community. From many website it seem that most foreigners are settled in the vicinity of the Motomachin-Chukagai area, is this correct ?

    Could some one let me know :
    - what are the costs of an apartment (max 100m2) in that area or there abouts ? I would like to like in the vicinity of the expat community, so to speak.
    - what will my monthly outgoings be like; its just my husband and I, both non-veggies :)

    I do look forward to your replies

    Thanks in advance

    Cheers :)

    Karen:cheers

    Hi divya,

    This is Meena from Bangalore.

    My husband just got a job in Yokohoma and we will be moving to Yokohoma shortly in October.

    Please i would like u to give some information on any Hospital(s) especially for Gynaceology and other general requirements in or around Yokohoma. Also do i need to have a medical Insurance or can i pay in cash... Any idea of Medical expenses or Links would be really helpful?

    I understand there is a Language problem so how are u all coping?

    Hope to get a feedback as soon as possible so that we can plan ahead.

    Thanks
