Osaka, chiba or Fukuoka. Sendai looks nice too

I wish I lived in Japan! And iif someone offered it to me I wouldn't care where it was as long as it was in Japan! I could always make adjustments to visit other cities!:D

Nikkou is wonderful place but I was there for 2 days and I think I never got so much umidity in my entire life. If I was there for other days I think I was going to grow gills. And it's great for nature and temples but not much more.
Of the Japan places I saw I think I would like to live in Nara or near Tokyo.
But I'm sure there are more beautiful places not too known to tourists. :D

Anywhere in Japan would be fine with me :) Probably a small town in the country (not TOO in the country; I love cities as well, just a little more space, nature, ect...)

I love Kyoto more than life itself, but I could live in the Nagoya area. Centrally located, easy travel east and west via the Shink, and it's in the heart of Nobunaga-land.

there's pollution? hehe I live in Tokyo at the moment and I think its a really clean place, no pollution problems as far as I've seen. But then again I have only been here one month ;)


The smog in Tokyo is terrible. You will never be able to see Fuji even though years ago, it could be seen pretty easily on non-cloudy days.

For an example of the smog.

Tokyo doesn't look like that all the time. >_< And really, I don't recall it looking like that on any of my visits. And you still CAN see Fuji from Tokyo--but it has to be a super-clear day.

When I first lived in Tokyo (in 1986) I lived in Shakujii Machi. My train was the Seibu Ikebukuro line, out of Ikebukuro station. There was one point near Nerima where the tracks were elevated, and if I was there at the right time, I could see, on the horizon, Mt. Fuji silhouetted in front of a blazing setting sun. It was absolutely gorgeous, and there were days when I lived just for that view on the way home from work.

Tivo recorded a Tokyo exposed show for me. It was pretty nice to actually have some pictures to associate with Shibuya, Ginza, and other districts. The little bars that have a max occpupancy of 6 or so are pretty neat.
