"When it comes to Russia, I would in any case want to move," a Twitter user nicknamed GraceOhara said.
Another Internet surfer said that "even though I missed the voting, I would have gladly moved to the Russian Far East."
The users suggested a wide array of ideas, with one of them calling for opening an analogue of the large Japanese online store HOMAC, which offers household goods for sale.
"Russian love DIY (do-it-yourself). Maybe, it would be relevant to open there [in the Far East] a HOMAC-like online store and start to trade?" the user TM-N tweeted.
The other 76 percent of respondents turned down the proposal, citing bad weather conditions in the area, among other things.
"The strength is needed to resist such cold weather so I guess, this proposal is only for people with very strong health," Saito Midoru tweeted.

Earlier, it was reported that the project to provide Russian citizens with free plots of land in the Far East would be enacted in several phases, starting in June 2016.
Parcels of land will be up for grabs in the regions of Yakutia, Kamchatka, Primorye, Khabarovsk, Amur, Magadan, Sakhalin, as well as in the Jewish and Chukotka autonomous regions.
The deal will be converted to lease or ownership rights after the initial period is over – or voided if the land has not been used.
With a population density of 340.8 people per square kilometer, Japan is one of the most crowded countries in the world, ranking only behind India, Bangladesh and the Philippines among countries with over 100 million people. Russia's Far East Federal District, on the other hand, has only about 1.02 people per square kilometer.
