The most inaka gaijin

Recommended Posts

Who here is in the most remote inaka place I wonder?

 

Certainly not me, but I'm interested to know if any of you people are in the middle of nowhere!

Not me but I have a friend in Gifu who is almost in the middle of nowhere - village of 500, nearest decent shop many many miles away.

Zwelgen's in Iiyama - which certainly ain't the middle of somewhere. What about you barok? Is your new place more remote than Iiyama?

I make fun of my buddy in Konan - a suburb of Nagoya in Aiichi-ken. He's amongst the rice fields.. Used to live in Fujinomiya-shizuoka. Pretty inaka!

Inaka gaijin - what do you do? English teacher? Do kids (maybe adults, too) point at you and say "ara....gaijin da!!!" It's happened to me many times!

I know someone in Matsunoyama in Niigata - very inaka. Surrounded by rice fields and insects for company.

I think one of my friends in Toyama probably beats many on that one. About 30 minute drive to the nearest small village that has basic shops. Seriously inaka. Beautiful area.

I've driven through some inaka places and really wondered what these people do for shopping and entertainment. And I don't mean Gucci footwear and perfume, I mean tinnies of beer and bread.
