Safe to walk around
Nice scenic walks
Housing actually affordable and not NYC tier jewed up
Clean and comfy

Too bad western and azn normies are flooding the city now.

I'd love to move there if I could.

I don't have much experience with high population density areas. I've lived on the outskirts of a somewhat large city all my life, but mostly I just stay out.
One thing I am kinda familiar with, though, is 6th street here in Austin. Just because the nature of my work, I sometimes drive through it on a Saturday night, and let me tell you it's night and fucking day. The buildings are all chipped and dirty looking, the asphalt is all busted up, the bike chariots are all garish and festooned with all kinds of junk, there's trash everywhere, the hoard of normalfags are all obnoxious and yelling across the street at each other, there's horrible music blaring out of every open door, and just looking at half the people you can reasonably guess what they'd do to a person they met in a back alley.

You could not pay me to live in an enormous city, but I'd rather live in Tokyo, one of the largest cities in the world, than any American major city.

If you come from the US or Britain there are lots of opportunities to be an English teacher. Just get some certificates and off you go. It's a pretty nasty life though and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone except the very adventurous. If you know Japanese and have a "real" professional skill, and/or a degree in some decent subject, you could get hired by a japanese company for stuff like overseas marketing.

The temperament of the horde makes a huge difference, you know. In a calm-spirited country they're just part of the scenery and you don't even have to think about them. In a not so calm-spirited country… well, this wiz nailed it >>25838

Given how socially rigid and eccentric Nips are, they are going to have a wave of troublesome foreigners and no economic growth to show afterwards. There's a good chance they will give the collective middle finger to Western preferences afterward.

I'm not really interested in arguing with all those Japanese experts ITT, but just wanted to say that I've been in Tokyo several times and it's the emptiest big city I've ever seen. During the night most of the streets are plain empty. During the day they are completely empty.
And that's the case for every city in Japan I've visited. As long as you stay away from meme places/subway AND don't live by the normalfags' schedule - you basically have an empty city for you to walk around. It's a unique and beautiful feeling, I would love to live there as a NEET and experience it every day.
Anyway, all I wanted to say is - if someone tells you that in Japan there are hoards of people walking the streets 24/7 and you will always be surrounded by them every minute of your existence - they are a fucking liar and you shouldn't listen to their lies.

not when assloads of people are being shuttled in, when there is no privacy, and you can only feed the deer special cookies the obasans sell from stalls for extorted prices. they also will come up and grab shit pants and shit to harass you. don't have any food? they dont give a damn about you. it's a scam, fuck the deer. like i said, feral cats were way more fun and would eat anything you happened to have, you could also play with them

The idea of staying up late playing vidya or watching animu, crammed in a small apartment as just one more body in a metropolis with 14 million residents does seem quite cozy and appealing to me, to be honest.

Given the otaku/hobbyist culture in Japan, it definitely seems like a great city to NEET in, especially in the context of what the wizzies >>29056 and >>29360 said.

Yesterday around 11pm I looked outside a window of my hostel near a bridge over a lake close to akihabara station and the street was completely empty.
Tokyo's overrated by Normans coming from some shitholes and spamming their social media with their stupid "observations" on the crowdiness of the city. They go to roppongi or some other night district and then spout generalising bullshit ""OMG Tokio is so busy during the night!!!,,. It's all an overhyped advertisement.
The thing about "gaijin spot" is bullshit too. (On a Tokyo local train)I once on purpose took the middle seat of an empty 3 person sitting space and 2 people sat beside me anyway.
>>29055
Tokyo was the only place where I saw a kebab bar. It's also the only place where I saw so many muslims. In Asakusa especially, and ueno. Curry center. Some hostels there(and in sapporo) have "Muslim friendly" food or some shit.

Good luck with the renting (wish me luck too pls).

Here's a great vid detailing the renting experience in Japan for foreigners. Just watch the whole damn thing. Here are the keypoints though. https://youtu.be/iZ5f_QokinY

It's literally impossible to move there unless you're a native English speaker or have some special skills.They won't let you in if you aren't useful to their
society

It would be too depressing to have to return to your shithole after the tourist visa expires

 No.33603

The thing I hate about cities is the noise of close quartered living..but from what I have heard/seen/read the Japanese are conscientious when it comes to being an asshole disturbance to the people around you with noise and rudeness, even on public transportation, unlike in the west where being as loud as possible is a virtue to large chunks of the population. If this is more than a meme, it would be cool to visit and maybe stay indeed. What could actually quiet apartment life be like?

Is it true, anyone who has been there, that the Japanese as a society actually frown upon loud asshole behavior?
