Would you rather live in Japan or where you live now? If so why?

If I had to pick, I'd continue to live in America. Although I'd like to travel to New Zealand.

*bursts out of suitcase*
At last! Japan!
*looks around*
Great.... Not France again. Last time I hid out in a leather suitcase. They always seem to make me end up in Europe...

Yes, I wish I was living in Japan. Food, Culture, lifestyle, transport system, government, etc, they have all that I love.
*gets in metal suitcase*
Let's see if this gives me better luck...

If you saw the North you would see that it is a LOT more rural than you think.


Every country has rural parts, but seeing as the majority of Japan's population resides in the city, when speaking about them generally, we refer to the greater percentage. Thus when generalizing Japan, we speak of it's urban areas which contain 86% of their entire population, 66.8% living in the large cities.

I hope this cleared things up for you.


Really? Cause when I talk about the United States I never only talk about the East coast and California. Also if we're going to get technical here is a population density map. As you can see most of japan is not densely populated and the majority of it is rather rural. I don't know maybe it's because when I talk about a country I don't only talk about its cities. Like when I speak about the United States I'm not only speaking of New York, LA, and Boston.

Regardless of population density, arent the cities in Japan cleaner than US cities? Ive heard that but dunno if its true. Hell, NYC is pretty damn dirty but that subway pee smell always reminds me of home

Don't think you understand the concept of generalizing.
When most of a countries residents live in cities, you speak of them when talking about the country as a whole.
However, if you want to generalize them by Japan's version of North Dakota, logic, reason and myself will take our leave of this conversation.

Probably Japan.
Then again realistically every Japanese would look at me funny. Especially one who can't learn another foreign language.
Though I would LOVE to visit it one day.

Yes because I think I'd love the culture and I love the Japanese language itself but no because I'd never fit in and I'd never feel like I was truly a part of living the Japanese life.

Why would I live in Japan???

Don't get me wrong, Japan would be an awesome place to visit for a period of time, and there are a lot of things to like about that country.

But I'll stick to Seattle, Washington, USA.

I'd miss too many luxuries of life if I was to limit myself to living in Japan after being used to living here. You can still find good Japanese food here. You can still find good Japanese anime. You can still find good Japanese electronics. You can still find Japanese cultural events to attend to. America is a melting pot of so many nationalities and ethnicities, that you can really get a taste of the world without having to TRAVEL the world to do it.

Now, if I lived and worked in Japan, what if I'm craving some Mexican carne asada and horchata? What if suddenly I wanted to catch an NFL or NBA game on the tube? In the mood to get an Italian capuccino and a Russian piroshki? There are literally thousands of things I would miss out on if I lived permanently in Japan. No thanks.

I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Really great as far as scenery and standard of living goes (though it is getting expensive) but I would definitely love to spend time in Japan. I like the culture and I'd love to learn more about it firsthand.

Maybe to visit, but I wouldn't like to live there.
Everything is more expensive.

I'd have to visit for awhile before decided to up and move to another country and culture. It's sounds great, but what about after novelty wears off?
