About the location
Hachioji is the perfect blend of city and nature, where central Tokyo is minutes away with the beauty of Takao mountain and Asakawa river in your backyard (in the city). You will find that the cost of daily living, restaurants, and transportation is comparable to what you would find in central Tokyo but at a much more reasonable price. A great place to live and work.
