Exactly as the thread title reads.

What cities used to captivate you enough to where you would have dreams about them when you were younger? Which cities do you still have dreams about?

Cities that you used to have dreams about or still have dreams about?

As someone who grew up watching anime, I was always fascinated by the hyper-futuristic image of Tokyo.

I sometimes look at satellite imagery for global cities across the planet on their light pollution index.

You can easily see all of Tokyo's nodes. Those high density and condensed circular marks in the urbanization. Such a monstrous city, such an impressive specimen of a metropolis.

Los Angeles is the city I aspired to live in and experience when I was younger.

The city didn't quite turn out as expected, unfortunately.
