More Euro-chauvinism.

This is nice.

Victoria, B.C. has just been named the best city in the world in prestigious Conde Nast's Readers' Choice Awards for top cities of 2023. Victoria is one of only two North American locations to make the list.

If you threw Vegas, NYC & LA in blender and then added Japanese customs... Tokyo is what you'd end up with.

It's quite the city to experience.

Also if you mixed in the weather of Atlanta or DC, and the natural scenery of Seattle.

Personally I think Tokyo is my favorite city in the world, but I'm not sure if I can live and especially work there knowing their work culture, plus my limited language ability. London is nice too.

Why would Toronto rank higher than Montreal?

That’s a very interesting, and accurate, way to describe Tokyo. Good thinking on that one!

I’ll be honest, Tokyo isn’t one of my personal favorites but it’s undoubtedly one of the top cities in the world.

Really you might even be able to scratch off Vegas other than the flashy neon lights, but NYC has that in Times Square and also parts of LA. Some might even consider LA alone to be Tokyo 2.0.

Yeah, the flashy lights were like NYC/Vegas. Ginza reminded me a lot of Madison Ave. A couple of the parks reminded me of Central Park... It's a lot like NY, sprawled out like LA.

I'm looking forward to visiting Kyoto pretty soon to get more of a historic Japanese experience.

I believe it was Anthony Bourdain who described Tokyo has having the density of New York and the sprawl of Los Angeles. Now Kyoto is unlike anything in the US.
