What’s the best thing about where you live now?

I live in a surfing city an hour west of Tokyo on the coast. From the beach, there is a glorious view of Mt. Fuji to the right and the heritage island of Enoshima to the left. The locals are very friendly and laid-back, and my colleagues are truly wonderful.
