  • Tokyo. I love technology and Tokyo is the most advanced city in the world when it comes to technology. Tokyo is also one of the most safe cities in the world as well.

    • I agree but then again, there's Yakuza. Haha.

    • I've been to Tokyo a couple times on business and its definitely not the most advanced city in the world when it comes to technology. Ever heard of a fax machine? Well they went out of style in the west 10+ years ago, but they are still widely used in Tokyo. Tokyo has a very odd feel to it, you arrive expecting a technological utopia, and you are utterly disappointed. Tokyo is a city that was... Back in the 80s it was THE place to be for technology, but since then it hasn't really improved. You will find a lot of technology from the 90s still in use there, the society has peaked do to aging problems, and so has a lot of the innovation. Not saying Tokyo isn't a cool place where you will find a lot of great technology, but there will be times where you feel like you teleported back to the 90s.

    • Honestly, the Yakuza *won't* be a problem, unless you get involved in their underworld. People who don't get involved in their world don't have a problem with them.

  • I'd rather go to Tokyo because I'm more interested in Japanese culture in general, and also because the air pollution in Hong Kong is fucked up.

  • I lived in Japan for months, and I'm pretty disillusioned by the country. I didn't live in Tokyo, but I also don't see the appeal of massive cities. I have very little interest in simply visiting Tokyo, unless there was a good reason.

    So, I guess I'd go to Hong Kong because I've never been, but the Chinese government makes me sick.

    • Maybe. However, the Japanese generally don't like cars that are more than 5 years old and ship them to other countries when they hit 5 years old.

  • Been to both and I prefer Hong Kong because it feels like a second hometown (it's basically a British city in Chinese) and I can speak the lingo. If going out of the cities though I prefer Japan FAR more than China.

    I would still like to try out Hong Kong, though.

  • Well I prefer Tokyo (having been to both multiple times I can pretty accurately answer). Hong Kong seemed too Westernized to me, everyone spoke English (which I didn't like), and it just seemed too much like the UK for my liking. If I wanted to experience Westernized stuff I could have stayed at home in the US, but I wanted to get a different experience and experience a different culture. I arrived in Tokyo and was happier with what I found, little English was spoken outside of the airport (so my Japanese classes actually were helpful (I took Chinese before going to Hong Kong and I dont think I used it once)), there wasn't as much English on signs (which I loved), it had a nice Eastern flair to it, the food was much less Westernized and the Tokyo people seemed more... real to me I guess you could put it, like they were legit Japanese people. In Hong Kong I felt like I was dealing with British people that were stuck in the body of a Chinese person if you know what I mean, all the cultural things were just tourist sites and a show for the tourists, and the city itself didn't really appeal to me that much because it was too Westernized. As I said before I dont like Westernized, I could just stay home if I wanted that, I want to see a new thing and Tokyo was definitely more culturally awesome then Hong Kong.

    • Well, given Hong Kong's British history, it actually makes a lot of sense.

    • @Curmudgeon Yeah it does, but I had always heard of Hong Kong being like some exotic eastern city with all these great things about it, so I guess I was just extremely disappointed when it didn't live up to the hype. Had I known what I was doing, I would have just flown to London. If you want to deal with British people I'd recommend going to London which is also a megacity in itself. The reason you would go to Asia (probably) is to experience something different, and you won't really get that feeling in Hong Kong, its just another big city. Only difference between Hong Kong and New York (in my opinion) is that there are more Chinese looking people.
