looking for a cheap accommodation is really hard. Actually, I'm working as a ウェブ開発者 but that alone won't guarantee accommodation, regardless if you can pay or not. You would require a guarantor, a Japanese citizen. Sometimes they would ask for key money, advance payment (like 2 months), cleaning fee and some money for the owner. Even the sakura house, surprisingly ask for Japanese guarantor , although they don't say literally that such requirement is guarantor system.

Good luck. Also, try to find a little bit away from central Tokyo, the price gets cheaper as it moves away.

I took the liberty of doing it myself and PMing the user about it. :)
