Ok, I ws watching this show last week on NHK World , the same show that I used for the Tokyo Prices video. And they had a segement on renting things in Tokyo. And wholely**bleep** you can rent almost anything in Tokyo. So of the things you can rent are amazing. LOL you can even rent a friend for a day. XD 

Why can't more Amercian cities be more fun like Tokyo is. Smiley Sad

The American automobile, surbanizism, and consumerism from the 1910 to 1970 are the reason or disdain for public transportation.

Because most likely, Americans in the U.S. can buy their things that want instead of renting. Renting animals in this country would never happen...

 


It's just not a huge demand. We have RAC (Rent-a-center stores) and they barely make it.

But still look at what the city had to offer. American cities can never compete with Tokyo.

Well trust me, once you lived in Tokyo once, you will quickly notice life is not as good as it is written in book or tv show, everything cost higher than other places in Japan, subway are always full and there are lot of dirty people, the street are always crowded and the sky is not clear and fresh like the one in US, plus I like the US cool air more

Nicer as in Tourist attraction, lots of mall, restaurant, entertainment, but not good for a long term living without a job, here in Tokyo, getting a job mean you can support only yourself, in US, a man without job can live by government money and still support his family of 3 people, wonder thing 1000/month could do if you only it canned food Smiley Happy in Tokyo, you get cup

ramen and toilet paper instead if you don't have a job lol
