One comment on “Gifu”

If someone were moving to Gifu, despite the fact everyone studies English in school, very few can actually speak it. It’s best to study Japanese and know some basics in advance. Life is quite different in cities outside of Tokyo. Tokyo may have a glamorous, fast-paced image, but this is not what daily life is like for most Japanese people. If someone would like to experience a more true daily lifestyle and culture in Japan, I recommend a smaller city like Gifu.
