Going outside of the Tokyo area (since so much anime is in there), which part of Japan would you want to live in?

For me, it would be in the Akita Prefecture (specifically, the capital city of Akita) because that's the credited home of the Akita Inu, the most famous Japanese dog breed (and my fave breed after black Labs).

I've actually thought about this one. I'd consider Nagoya as a place to live in Japan. It's still a busy city, but without all the Tokyo chaos. Beautiful scenery, cooler climate, and a great location for winter sports lol. And if I ever feel the need to venture into Tokyo for a day, it's not too long of a train ride.

Akihabara, Japan.

Akihabara is a district in Tokyo (at least the one you are referring to). So I don't think that counts.

I used to live in Ayase City (which is west of Yokohama) and really enjoyed it there and in Yokohama. But, the place I visited that I wouldn't mind living in the most would probably be Sapporo. Loved the people, culture, and sites that were up there.

Okinawa and Osaka. I don't know other places that would fit for this topic.

I basically am keeping any place open that isn't in Tokyo/metro area.

Fukuoka is kinda cool, if it weren't for the fact that good concerts and otaku events only take place there once every blue moon or something. You mostly have to take the Shinkansen for a good six to eight hours back to Tokyo. That's an expensive ticket.

That being said, I don't know if there's a good Akiba-like place in Kyushu even. If anyone knows, I'm all ears.

It is the setting for Sketchbook, though. Whoo! ^_^

Path of least resistance: Yokohama. Eh? ^_^

I really liked Kobe the last few times I was there in Japan. Not as busy as Tokyo, but has a decent nightlife.

Yokosuka is a decent city with a lot of bars that cater to the US soldiers stationed there. It's a good place to have a good time, not sure about living there though.
