Amount:  ¥700,000 to ¥1,000,000 yen. The amount granted will vary depending on the duration of stay in Japan and other factors.

However, the latter amount (i.e. two thirds of the total) may be payable in two or three instalments, taking into account various circumstances surrounding the grantee in Japan.
