    My favorite city is probably a small town in the south called Kanoya City. There's absolutely nothing to do there—it's probably more of a town than a city. When I homestayed there (something like eight years ago) it was pretty amazing to be somewhere with fresh air and a much slower pace. At the time, I had only lived in New York City, so it was a big, big change for me.

    Favorite food—if you're ever in Tokyo, check out AFURI. It's about a 5 minute walk north of the JR Harajuku Station. So delicious.

      Rural parts feel very friendly and slower paced, I was in Saitama for a bit, felt a bit too isolated though. I will definitely check it out if I ever make it back someday. Ramen can be hit or miss since there are so many styles, Tokyo style ramen is my favorite (closest we have in SF is Katana-ya).

      Thanks for doing the AMA!
