** It ultimately turns out that Yukiko doesn't think about Inaba as boring, as she pointedly disagrees with a reporter describing it that way. Her main problem was the belief that she ''had'' to stay there and inherit her family's inn, but after getting past that, chose to do so for the sake of her family and all the people who worked for the inn who treated her kindly. As for Yosuke, while he admits that Inaba ''is'' boring, he also says that all his friends are there.
** It also comes up in Eri Minami's Social Link. She, a woman who married an Inaba man who had a son, finds the town somewhat boring, with TV and the Internet as her only forms of entertainment. It doesn't help that she has no friends among the other mothers who come to the daycare center, at least partly due to their looking down on her as an outsider and second mother.
