Compared to other Japanese cities this is not a city to visit for fun. The people are busy and the city is relatively dirty for a Japanese city.
The food is not as good as any ofthe other places I have been or lived in Japan. I was not happy with the city but my company is headquarteded here so I guess I will occasionally go there. There were to many Koreans too.
Being so close the the railway makes it an ideal place for those wishing to visit the beautiful Nasu Highlands, and the short train ride to Nikko where the Cultural Heritage Park is situated.
All in all a very pleasant experience to stay there.
