Is Kyoto is a nice place to live and work?

If you've lived in Kyoto, how did you like it? How is the dialect there? Are the people as direct as Osakans?

I visited Kyoto once for a couple of days when I lived and worked in Kanagawa/Tokyo, but didn't get beyond the main tourist area. My son has only lived in the US, so it would be his first time in Japan. My wife is from Tokyo. I'm of course considering Tokyo too, but Kyoto seems like an interesting alternative. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts about the area.

Thanks!

I've been living in Kyoto for over six months now. I'm a university student so my expectations will surely different for yours. I'm used to living in big cities with at least twice the population of Kyoto, so it's a bit quiet for me, but I think for a family it's a good city.
