hey so im from new york city and iv been living in japan for a few months but my job is sadly stationed in saitama, about a half hour outside tokyo. jobs pretty good and i have a company apt for a year but sadly after that im going to have to get my own place which is pretty difficult to do in tokyo on my salary(220,000 a month 9am-5pm mon-fri). i know some people make much less and get by just fine and i would be fine also if saitama had a bit more going on. one of my coworkers recommended i consider moving to sapporo and give english teaching a shot when my apt expires because apparently native English speakers are harder to come by. iv always wanted to live in a city where i have easy access to snowboarding but i really don't know much about sapporo other than miso ramen and apparently beautiful snow and mountains. iv herd to city is much smaller than tokyo but apparently is still very fun. does any one have any experience working and teaching in sapporo and tokyo? how do they compare? i really enjoy night life and need to be able to meet many people. is the city kind of desolate? basically asking hows life there and how is the job field for a native english speaker with a spousal visa and a year of experience in a japanese company under his belt?
