        Yes, that would've been better. Also, this is a worryingly stupid thread and if- you actually posted it unironically you should consult a psychiatrist, get your IQ tested, maybe a neurologist too. There's a nonzero chance you might actually be clinically moronic.

    >do the allures of X magically disappear when you move there?
    no - they are just overshadowed by the negatives of actually living in the country and your inability to enjoy those allures as you are too busy dealing with the said negatives

    Overcoming adversity is compelling, there's a profound appeal to seeing how a society has solved difficult survival problems. But at the end of the day it's usually nicer to live in a place that's easy and comfortable.

        It gets annoying after some time, it's fine as a tourist to be the life of a party. Not so much when you're trying to actively live a social construct or advance up the totem pole of work.

        >-"I don't need a car" wears off super fast once you realize how getting around is as a non-tourist
        Are you missing a word? How [bad?] getting around is? How is getting around as a non-tourist—expensive? Difficult? Slow?

        Anyway, I am a big believer in not needing a car, whether as a tourist or resident, because I don’t get pleasure out of driving, and at least where I am, owning, insuring, and parking a car work out to being less cost-effective than occasional short-term rentals. Driving only sometimes saves me time, as well; for a lot of the routes I take, trains end up being approximately as fast, and occasionally faster.

        But I’m not in Japan, and I don’t think my impressions of this situation would be any different if I were visiting or staying longer-term.

        Is it just that your no-car commute has become more annoying over time? Would driving make it better? If so, what’s stopping you from getting the car you don’t officially need?

        [...]
        I inhabit pretty much the opposite space. I live in an urban area in Switzerland, which I find great to live in but wouldn’t visit as a tourist. I don’t think Switzerland offers very good returns on investment to visitors in general, particularly when compared to most of our neighboring countries, which offer similar things to most of what we’ve got, but cost much less. Quality of life for residents is generally excellent, though, almost as good as its reputation.

        >Are you missing a word? How [bad?] getting around is? How is getting around as a non-tourist—expensive? Difficult? Slow?
        I don't own a car and haven't for years, but I see the use in a metro like Osaka or such. Sure if you are living just downtown and really have no reason to ever leave the city go for it, but a kei car is so cheap and makes things nice for weekends that the nickle and diming of trains+cabs gets annoying.
        >Is it just that your no-car commute has become more annoying over time? Would driving make it better? If so, what’s stopping you from getting the car you don’t officially need?
        Because if you work overnight like many do in IT you're stuck sleeping at work till 5am.
        Hauling groceries can be stupidly annoying in summer unless you are one of those morons who thinks shopping at 711 is the way to go.
        Going to places to hike that aren't just random places at the end of train stops, no I don't want to go hike in Oku-tama... again...
        Opens up going to a lot of events moreso than planning your train route+moving shit+getting there vs. just driving.

        Again it's generally shit you only realize after living in Japan, if you're simply wow'd by Tokyo and Akihabara and that's it great. Glad you have simple pleasures.

        You're used to the western world where people are generally accepted no matter what they look like. In Japan you're never ever truly accepted and you'll always be a treated as a novelty, is that something you want to live with all the time?

    Australia is great to visit, its literally a big holiday island.
    Its not actually good at all to live here, its in fact hell.

    • 2 months ago

      from my research and understanding of australia, its literally the opposite tbqh. boring but stable.
      low crime rates, high standard of living for poor people (unemployment benefits, healthcare, lower inflation cf euros), interest free education (yes loans but interest free), compared to euros the pay is decent.
      the bad things are that it can be authoritarian and bureaucratic without any fundamental freedoms unlike america, switzerland or czechia.
      I wonder what the future of australia will be in 100 years when its mining industry declines, as most of its industry is centered around trickle down mining with all other industries stemming from it.

    Yes. When you live in a place, you are preoccupied with making a living. The fact that there is scenery and tourist activities to do has little bearing on your daily life. Your spending power as a local worker will never achieve that of a tourist on vacation, so you will always be a poorgay even if you do leverage labor scarcity to make a higher wage than you would in a humdrum city.
    As a seasonal worker, you are treated by the local residents as just another transient. People are usually nice to those who help them do business and make money, but it's tough to break into social circles. If you are extroverted, however, the tourist hordes provide many opportunities to meet people and pursue conquests. Extroverts are far more likely to enjoy living in a bustling tourist destination.
