Depends what you are doing, "software engineer" is a nice broad term. Depending on your age, the age of the Japanese people doing the same work, your experience level, the hours worked, and how much resonsibility you have, it could be from 280,000-400,000.

Sounds curiously like a programming position, and programmers world-wide are notorious for receiving poor wages for the amount of work they put in.

300,000 - 380,000 would be my guess. Do you not have a contract or talked about this in your interview??

Apartment would be around (probably more) than 50,000 a month.
Water, gas, electricity is about 15,000 a month.
Food I normally allow about 7,000/week, 30,000 a month.
Transport depends, but about 10,000 a month usually.

200,000yen for an IT position is an insult, tell them to get with reality. I hope its a part time job, 3 days a week.

For 200,000yen they need to pay for your accomadation (Japanese people who are getting paid that much would be living in company dorm rooms for free or cheap - 10,000/month) or pay you enough to live on - at least an extra 50,000, but I would ask for 80,000.
