i wouldn't even bother. just put all your cash in your wallet (or split half with your partner/wife). japan is not like europe, there is neglible risk of getting pick-pocketed or robbed. and since you're renting whole apartment i also don't see any need to lock up your bags or whatever.
*disclaimer* of course, "low crime doesn't mean no crime" but i go japan carry 300-400k yen in cash without worrying one bit about it (some in wallet some in wife handbag some leave behind in unlocked luggage).
How much is the salary of an average Japan person ?
