"Rural" Japan Anonymous 2359

When I was traveling around Japan I came to love the smaller prefectures more than the big cities.

Anon, I know exactly how you feel. We left “civilization” a couple of times to get to out-of-the-way onsen during my first and only trip there, and I was enchanted by the tiny rural train stations. Here are the pics I could find of the one nearer to Tokyo, but there was an even more remote one southeast of Nara that absolutely fulfilled every weeb fantasy I had.

And a couple of panos if it’ll let me upload them, showing how rural the area was.

Thank you! This is my jam!
I really love inaka sceneries. The big traditional houses/ryokan. The cicadas. The damp hot atmosphere (which I actually hate but it's such a signifier lol). The general quietness. The "green" smell. The simple and cheap food.

I am not gonna lie, I probably wouldn't want to live in a total bumfuck nowhere with only rice fields and mountains, but a smaller country city (and about 1 to 3 hours from a big city like Tokyo or Oosaka) would really be my ideal place.

I mean, as a tall tattooed gaijin I know I stick out like a sore thumb, but I do appreciate these places.

Just wanted to add: I also really really love urban sceneries as well, like I'd love to stroll around in Tokyo at midnight, go to a kombini and drink iced tea bought from a vending machine while admiring city lights, but inaka Japan is so under appreciated. I guess because weeabos in general like the technological pop culture aspect of Japan. Which is totally cool, but yes, give country Japan some love. The festivals are so unique and nice.

I guess that's why I really want to live somewhere that meet both things (urban and country) in the middle.

Saged for samefagging.

I traveled throughout Japan but regret not taking photos. One of my favorite "rural" places was Beppu. I like how you can see the mist from the onsens as you drive in, and it actually clouds the road (pic related)

I'm seriously considering moving back to Japan because it's so peaceful. Nice pics OP!

More pics. I always liked the rock formations by the beaches (even in the distance). Never been to this particular beach, but it looks nice.

this is the kind of japan i really love and would love to live in. not because muh animu, but i like the idealistic way people try to interact, like 50s america. being cordial, sweeping negativity under the rug, trying to preserve 50s style families, low social interaction, everyone keeps to themselves other than talking behind your back. but i am only 1/4th japanese and, even my grandma didn't feel as accepted when she came back after leaving. even though i like a lot of things that many people (especially weebs) would hate about japan, i would never truly be or feel welcome.

image dump when i go home.

OP here, did you take all the pics yourself anon? They're super pretty!!
>>2368
Ahhh you understand me! I've been living in a big city my whole life so I think living in a completely isolated small town would freak me out. About 2 hour away from a big city sounds absolutely perfect though!
>>2378
You made me want to visit Beppu now anon!! The pic is so calming…

Why do you think you would be lost anon? Big cities are a lot harder to navigate than a small town

I'm not very good with Japanese I only know hirigana and katakana lol and asking someone for directions would probably be very hard for me. In addition I feel like more rural locations aren't made for tourists and have a lot less info for them/maps. Also I'm from a big city so traveling in one doesn't scare me as much due to the possibilities of more forms of transportation, maps, and English speakers. I would still love to give it a shot tho and this thread only makes me want to explore rural Japan more. It's really beautiful.

I found a lot of the countryside scenery in Your Name super cozy and nice
