Hey, thank for the tip.

The problem is i have most of my life's rural experience through...Havest Moon. So probably shouldn't head the conversation there. Of course can doctor some lines like clean air, peaceful day and such. But don't want to tell lie like a rug right in the first meeting (or any meeting after that, to be honest)

Can you actually recognize the accent? Or is it just a little bit different? If it is anything like Osaka-ben, i think i will instantly fall with love with it

Any suggestions on an anime character, or youtube video that provide conversations of people speaking in Tosaben. As apparently got none from the anime suggestion thread.
Tosaben speaker...

Btw, as a native Osaka (heck, born in city of Sakai even) I had a pretty thick kansaiben accent
But after living outside of Japan for so long, I completely lost it. Now when I speak in Japanese it's completely hyoujungo.

The girls here are quite pretty; not from their looks, but rather the way they dress makes them look fashionable.
And the lolis here are damn cute.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Iga is the ninja village.

Btw Saintess, are you in Japan on vacation by yourself or are you in some sort of tour or other business? Being an otaku, what comes to mind for a visit to Japan is Akiba or in this time of year, this place:
