I really loved Osaka, and since I know about it and have visited I think it would be wiser to stick with something I know. If I went back to Japan on holiday next year I would definitely visit Osaka again, but I would certainly like to explore other regions of Japan.
I'd really need to research which is best for me, in terms of prices, job prospects etc. If I could get a decent job, then I'd be happy mostly anywhere decent, but I'd really love one in Osaka. My Japanese is quite poor at the moment so I'm hoping to improve that in the coming year.
