Anthony Bourdain is one of the most famous globetrotters alive today. The transient celebrity chef spends more than 200 days a year on the road, writing books, working on his Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and filming his many television shows.
Given that Bourdain has visited seemingly every city on the planet, you might expect him to have a difficult time identifying his favorite. As it turns out, however, it’s a very easy choice for him.
“I went to Tokyo the first time and my head kind of exploded,” he said. “I compared it to taking my first acid trip: Nothing was ever the same for me. I just wanted more of it. If I had to agree to live in one country, or even one city, for the rest of my life, never leaving it, I’d pick Tokyo in a second.”
Bourdain is not alone in his love for Tokyo.
