・Many “Best Places to Live” rankings exist, each with different results

・The “Best Places to Live” ranking and the “Most Comfortable Places to Live” ranking will be different in content.

・The reason for this is that the “Best Places to Live” ranking is a simple popularity poll, while the “Most Comfortable Places to Live” ranking is a tally of evaluations by people who actually live in the area.

These are the quotes from the article

 

 



 

Housing and people cannot be determined by ideals and aspirations alone.

 

With more and more people working online, there are more choices of where to live than before. (Not necessarily near where they work)

 

Best Town to Live in Ranking

 

You see it all the time.

Whenever I see the names of famous cities in the ranking, I wonder if I really want to live there. I am the one who was wondering.

 

As I said in the article above, I agree that “the city you want to live in” = “the city you often visit for fun”. Put another way, we might say that “the city you want to live in” = “the city of your ideals and aspirations”.

 

It is also interesting to note that a good number of people choose the place they currently live in when compiling the ranking of the best places to live. Is it a case of “Home is where you make it.”?

 

Anyway,

 

I was reminded once again that the ranking of the best places to live has a strong entertainment factor and cannot be relied upon.

The livability rankings are still helpful because they are compiled from the voices of people who actually live in the area. (Compared to the ranking of cities where people would like to live, which is just a popularity contest, the ranking of the most comfortable places to live requires a great deal of money and effort to find out.)

 

A residence cannot be easily changed if it is a rental, or even if it is a purchase.

 

The synonym for ideal is reality.

 

It is important to note that if you decide based on ideals alone, you may end up making unrealistic decisions.

 

This may be true not only for housing, but also for people (human relationships).

But, well, in physical terms, a change of residence may be more difficult than a change of people, so I would still like to be very careful in making decisions about my residence.

 

These are some of my many thoughts from the article about the ranking of the best places to live.

 

See you then.

 

Basically, my perception of the city is that it is a place to go for fun, not a place to live. Well, I am a city dweller myself.^^;
