I lived in Fukuoka in 2003/04 and really enjoyed it, thought it was really vibrant, good nightlife, lots of stuff nearby and yet not too big so it all seemed manageable.
I'm thinking of coming back to Japan to live, but choosing another city just so it seems fresh. I know no other city is gonna match it exactly but anyone have any input or suggestions of cities that are similar in vibe/size/nature? I'm thinking Kobe??
Thanks, and sorry if the question is kinda vague!
