I've lived in both countries for many years, Seoul and Osaka.

Seoul doesn't feel futuristic at all. It's a very 'lived-in' kind of place....I can't recall anywhere in Seoul that feels futuristic.

Of the two, Tokyo feels more futuristic. Mostly because more technology like outdoor escalators, little gadgets in the bathroom, stuff like that.

You can't guarantee there won't be a 9.5 earthquake that completely destroys coastal California either. It is actually more likely than S korean being nuked.

He's a Japanophile.. Japan always wins. Even though both are considered top 10 most technologically advanced nations in almost every publication, he says Seoul feels "lived in" because of something stupid like outdoor escalators (which I've seen in Seoul).....

I've seen outdoor escalators in American cities, particularly outdoor shopping malls. Now does Seoul have those hi-tech washlet toilets? When I went to Seoul it was 2009, and I'm not sure if it felt any more or less futuristic than TYO. But from what I've seen in pics and movies, Shanghai looks more futuristic than either of those two.
