Hamamatsu - Typical Japan
"Hamamatsu -- A Great Place to Live, but..."
I enjoy Hamamatsu tremendously. But I can't say that it would make much of a destination. However, if you happen to be coming for some reason, you can see a typical medium sized city. And it's a hard city to get lost in, because Act Tower can be seen from everywhere. The people in Hamamatsu are friendly, and very used to foreigners (so none of that gawking that can happen elsewhere).
