    Nice! It's near shirakawago I think. You can also be friends with Gezora.

    Depends where in Hyogo. North Hyogo is a very desolate lonely place I hear.

    As Neb said - Hyogo is massive. We could be 12 mins to Osaka, or over 3 hours away. That being said, most of the current Perth Hyogo JETs who aren't recontracting are in awesome places (I know 3 are from Kobe, Takarazuka and Nishinomiya). Still you could be put in somewhere remote, so be prepared.

    Lol, population density of 88people per square km, ouch. Did you want Hokkaido that bad? Look over the 2009 placements thread, 1 dude got placed in Kitami.

    Yeah thanks for pointing me his way I found him on the HAJET website as well.

    I don't see a problem with the density I grew up in the boonies (neighbours 1/2 a km away) nearest town was 10 minutes by car and had 2000 people.
    I think I can handle it. Also there is an airport.

    Yeam...but as was noted in a different thread, rural Hokkaido isn't exactly heaven on earth, what with it being expensive to escape, and with really volatile weather. Lessee here, if I recall correctly, the guy who got Kitami was acting a little douchey and got jumped on by other ITIL members for it.

    haha I wouldn't know I'm a lurker so this is my first real day of posting here.
    Well I'm up for it. I've been rural my whole life
    I'll make it work.
    I currently live rural Southern Hokkaido and it's much much smaller than Kitami so I'm hoping I'll be ok.

    Meh, the size of the city matters little in my opinion, it's the density that counts, and 88 is rather... small. Give the Hokkaido thread a read, although I wouldn't want to be placed in Hokkaido, the people who do get placed there often have a great time. I visited Sapporo for a few days last year and I fell in love with the city, so you know, it's not all hate for Hokkaido here

    Why is everyone hating on AV's placement? She's happy and that's what counts, plus I think she knows what she wants. Damn.

    Also on a related note, yay to everyone who got their placements!

    Edit: Neb had a good post while I was typing. I am now irrelevant.

    I'm just one express train from Sapporo and I share the love for it. Though I think my love for Hakodate is stronger

    Glad to hear it's not all hate from you.
    I'm quite happy and being a Canadian 88 still seems high to me!

    Amen to that. It's the deep, snowy winters that I'd prefer to avoid. Seems like most people want to keep the climate they know.

    That's so lame. Like Hokkaido is some hole. Ah, revel in the glory AV - you got Hokkaido - not south but still pretty close. I'd call that a win.
