I have been to Tokyo. I have been to several dozen cities in the U.S.

None are anything, even remotely, like Tokyo.

What I don't like about Tokyo is there are several different companies running the subways/railways.
The tickets are not mutually acceptable. It can be confusing to visitors.

I think any American city can have more similarities with any other American city than ANY of them have with Tokyo, if that makes sense.

I know how you feel, I used to feel that way about Italy and Greece and had this idea that maybe some city here would be like some city there.

Eventually the answer is to use your imagination.

Arrive without traveling ...

See all without looking ...
