It is very important to organize your accomplishments, the collected data, and related documents you used during your education in Japan, no matter what you are going to do after graduation. They are valuable documents which indicate what you have achieved in Japan.
Do not forget to express your gratitude to those who looked after you during your stay in Japan. Thank-you note would be good if you are too busy to visit them. It is also important to exchange contact information with your friends you made in Japan, both Japanese and those from other countries, so you can keep in touch with them. Friends are precious existence for you when you go out to the society.
There is a Japanese saying, "It is an ill bird that fouls its own nest." Your impression will be bad if there are furniture or trashes left after you moved out. Be sure to clean up your room and have the owner to check it when you terminate the lease contract.
You should give notice to the owner at least 1 month before you move out. If your notice is too late, you may have to pay a rent for a month.
Also be careful not to forget the payment of water, lighting and heating expenses, and telephone bill, especially the bill of international calls.
