I wouldn't want to live any where but where I am right now <small mid-west town> I have lived all over the world in my 25 years in the army and have met many different people and most were wonderful kind people with a few bad apples the guy who laid the IED that cost me my left leg being one of them (I want to find him and run him through a woodchipper feet first but that is just me) Yeah if you want to live in Japan go for it I bet you will meet a lot of nice people and a few bad apples

BTW anyone know what the immigration laws for japan are? Do they differ much from the us?

japan
I did some quick research and it looks rather hard to get permission to stay in Japan any longer than 90 days.
Here is a link with the laws- http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Japanese_Law_and_Government/Immigration_Law The
info looks to be legit . It looks like it is easier to gain American citizenship than Japanese citizenship

Personally I would love to live in Japan whether i'm an outsider or not ! My dream is to go to Japan and study Japanese cuisine and then
open a Japanese restaurant back in America but I don't think I would want to live there forever.

They're not rude or racist towards foreigners, but you will always be a Gaijin to them. Even though I am part Japanese, I would even be considered a Gaijin.

@op - from which perspective if I may ask?

ex:
-Theres the law perspective
-Acquaintance perspective
-Neighbors and so on

*I'm sure if you look up immigration laws your kids (according to your example) are not even Japanese Citizens...
