Jumping on the bandwagon, indeed! This survey has nothing to do with the recent earthquake, tsunami, or nuclear crisis. It is just a survey of homesick Tokyoites!

The title here is just a poor excuse to try to jump on the flyjin bandwagon, in this survey from goo Ranking into when people who’ve moved to Tokyo want to swiftly return back home.


Between the 23rd and 26th of March 2011 1,070 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-base questionnaire. 53.4% of the sample were female, 10.2% in their teens, 13.1% in their twenties, 24.7% in their thirties, 23.7% in their forties, 13.3% in their fifties, and 15.0% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

Q: After moving to Tokyo, when do you get that feeling that you want to swiftly return home? (Sample size=1,070)
