Yes, but it is also very expense. Phones can be rented at Kansai International Airport, Narita International Airport and Haneda International Airport.  You should plan on using Skype, Line, Facebook or email at the university to communicate with friends and family. It is possible to rent an internet router at the airport (see above).

What is the weather like?

Average High Average Low
August 31 deg Celsius 23 deg Celsius
September 27 deg Celsius 19 deg Celsius

 

That means in August, you can expect the temperature to be over 31 degrees Celsius on some days, and in September it starts cooling, but it is still quite hot in the daytime.

 

What kind of clothing should I bring?

In general, university students dress causally. However, there will be a few times that you will need to dress more formally. Men typically will wear a shirt & tie and slacks (a jacket is not necessary but you may wear one if you wish) and women, a skirt (or long slacks) and a blouse (jacket is optional.)
