What do I do about rent, initial costs, and monthly fees?
Naturally it differs depending on the policies of whoever owns the share house. However, even when considering rent and other monthly fees (utilities, internet, etc.) added together, the costs are for the most part relatively lower than one room apartments in the area. When signing the contract, they may ask for a deposit, insurance fee, or deduct cleaning fee for when you leave, so be sure to inquire about these fees before making a final decision.
