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 ?

Not a problem if you don't go seedy place actually ; why care how much they earn? They are not really needing money to spend , they rather put money in bank without interest until the banks want to force them spend money with negative interest! Most Japanese are safe la not like some countries.


edit

Unless you are just curious then sorry :p

day 6 is going to be too packed. it is about 2hr to get from Hiroshima to Tadanoumi station, and another 15min by ferry to Okunoshima. see schedule here:
http://www.qkamura.or.jp/ohkuno/access/images/jikokuhyo.pdf

it is likely to be afternoon by the time u are back in Hiroshima. peace park and memorial museum can easily take the whole afternoon. and Shukkenien closes at 5pm. u will probably have to drop Suhkkenien and castle. Hondori u can leave it for the evening or do it on day 5 evening since there is nothing to do at all in miyajima after dark.
