1. Japanese cities offer a wide range of services like any other cities across the world. Urban life is affluent and convenient. But housing is a problem. The apartment in Kobe cost an average of RM2m. The residential land would cost more. Not many people can own a home in the city.
2. Japanese housewives go shopping either to the local supermarket or fishmonger’s shop. Modern career women living in the inner city shop in SOGO and other megamalls.
