Where would you rather live, the UK or Japan?

Last Friday,I gave a presentation about “natural disasters” in the UK and Japan.

In the UK, natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, heat waves and tornadoes hardly ever happen. Floods happen about once a year.

By contrast, natural disasters often happen in Japan. In particular, earthquakes, floods and typhoons happen almost every year.

According to the Global Peace Index Rankings in 2010, Japan is in 3rd place and the UK is in 31st place. The Rankings include internal situations like violence and crime and  external situations like wars and military operations.

Where would you rather live, the UK or Japan?

What kind of country do you want to live in?

    In terms of natural disasters, the UK isn’t dangerous, so that’s no reason NOT to live in Britain. There are many good reasons to live in the UK. Multicultural society, close to Europe, great ethnic food, lively cultural scene…..

    But I like living in Japan, too. It’s very safe and clean, people are polite and considerate, service is excellent, transport is the best in the world, Japanese food is healthy and delicious, and actually I think the cost of living is cheaper than in the UK!

    But Japan does have natural disasters…
