Clothes and fashion crap is stupidly pricey in Japan. you are almost better off taking a flight to hong kong with an empty suitcase, buying clothes, and then flying back instead of going to a shopping center. I'm not kidding.
also, if you don't mind a 15+ minute walk to the subway station, you can find some impressively inexpensive housing even in Tokyo.
If you want an apartment across the street from the subway station, it's going to be $2,650 per month for a 500 sq ft. studio, but you can get a 2 br. 1200 sq ft. place for $1,200 if you can live with being a little ways out. You also won't have ambulance sirens waking you up four or so times per week when you are trying to sleep.
