That is the question! I would honestly prefer a city placement. Better access to train lines, more shops, better night life. I suppose the inaka has its charms as well. Beautiful scenery, simple life, nice people.
The PA from Nara emailed me again and told me that a lot of the people leaving are from populated cities! I am excited! She mentioned a bunch of vacancies in cities close to Osaka and Nara City! For now, I just play the waiting game again...until the CO or my predecessor contacts me.
