Which area of Japan that isn't in the Tokyo area would you want to vacation/live in? For me, it's any of the the areas that associated with the many Japanese dog breed.

Specifically, Kochi City is home to the Tos/Japanese Mastiff. For anime fans, this province is also where Nana Mizuki was born.

Finally, being a former martial artist, Okinawa is where karate was born.

Kyoto, thanks to Detective Conan. Maybe a few of Japan's surrounding islands, such as Okinawa.

No interest whatsoever in Tokyo.

I ask non-Tokyo related since it's such a popular place to visit and I want to open up the places of interest scope to other areas.

Hmmm, probably Nagoya or Akita, seen as most of my Jap-friends seem to live there.

Sapporo, Hokkaido prefecture in general. Tappi Misaki for some good pictures, and then various places around Kyoto as well as travel to Kobe. Lastly, would like to visit Osaka and then down to Okinawa to hop around on some of the islands.

Okinawa stays a very comfortable temperature in the wintertime. You'll bake like a potato in the summer though.

There's so much more to Japan than Tokyo, though. I stayed there, and while it was nice, there were times where it just seemed like it got old.

I'm jealous ^_^; how long were you there till it got to the point of getting old? But I agree about the staying in the same place forever, Japan is so incredibly versatile with their islands.

Inland near some mountains. So maybe anywhere in the Nagano or Gifu prefectures.
