Having the time of my life in Japan. Been here for a couple of months now and everyone is really friendly and hospitable. Such a difference with the US or Australia, where i also lived longterm. It's safe, efficient and amazingly affordable here.

I remember half a year ago, Tokyo ranked around 100 on this site, but now 11?? Is my memory so wrong?

Not cheap, but better healthcare, much safer and better infrastructure than U.S. and more fun than Australia, South Korea, New Zealand etc. Almost on par with Western Europe, although more polluted and much bigger chance of earthquakes. The japanese are smart, polite and funny, i am having a good time here, not missing California at all.

Cost of living can be high but you can live for cheap without too much struggle.
Not too difficult to create of international group of friends if you have difficulty to integrate.
Extremely safe compare to other big cities and extremely convenient.
Makes it very hard to leave.
