    Great posts, thanks! I had put down Kobe City as my first choice and in my interview I was able to back it up when they asked me about it, so I'm really crossing my fingers. I did hear from a friend that Saitama was an armpit, but I'm from NJ, so I guess if I was placed there it'd be like I never moved at all lol jk

    I'm going to have to stick up for Tohoku - Akita is smashing.

    Before I left the UK I knew nothing about this place but at the event they hosted for the accepted JETs in the London Japan Embassy prior to departure, every Japanese person I met at that party told me the same three things: "Akita is famous for the best rice in Japan, the best sake in Japan and the best women in Japan."

    They were spot on about all three - they don't use the expression 秋田美人 for nothing, if you like your ladies looking hot then here is the place for you - (the rest of Tohoku is pretty shitty though... apart from Yamagata, it's not bad.)

    akita have been clinging on to that for decades despite the standards of beauty changing. I guess if you want some dwarf who hasnt seen the sun since they were a child then maybe its the place for you.

    To be fair, though, everyone in every prefecture parrots that they have the best rice, best sake, best ___.

    One thing I know for certain, I am not one of the three best smells in Japan today.

    Enkai last night and I nearly missed work this morning, I think I smell like a rotten brewery today!! :\

    (Thank god for those stupid masks.)
