Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Probably better for singles / those without kids because the family/kids work-life balance wouldn’t be as depressing. Not having kids would give you freedom to vacation on any days, not just during school breaks when all of Japan is on holiday and prices are through the roof and traffic is horrendous. - Mar 2019


Any. Schools are varied and excellent. The social scene is diverse and multicultural. - Mar 2018


This is a good city for anyone. Families will find the compound living to be safe and convenient. The commute is excellent. Singles and couples seem to enjoy the restaurants, nightlife, festivals and the endless travel options. Skiiers and snowboarders will be delighted by the convenience and options. - Feb 2014
