The Detroit of Japan

You won't like it; the people are crude and unrefined for the most part -- as opposed to the people in Tokyo who are affected and snobbish.

Take your pick, I guess. But the more I visit Osaka the tackier and tackier the people and the place seems to be. It's amazing how a megaopolis can have such a provincial feeling.

Kyoto, though, is another story...

Thanks for bringing up Detroit. Why not take your 200 euros there and *buy* a home?

Yes, didn't Bowie spend time in old Kyoto sleeping on the matted ground after he quit Berlin? After all, Bowie was born in South London and you lived in Streatham, Bowie lives in Downtown Manhattan and so have you...

How expensive is living in Kyoto compared to Tokyo or Osaka?

about the same as osaka. tokyo is probably more. considering the economic slowdown in jp though, a few hundred dollars will get you a (tiny) apartment just about anywhere there these days.
