I have already had the chance to travel a little bit, so I think I would choose a city that I don't know and yet which fascinates me: Tokyo.
Tokyo is one of the largest cities in the world, and one which is interesting because it is the capital of Japan and has had a large influence on the Western world. I think of the delicate Japanese food, the powerful Japanese industry in areas such as technology and cars. Martial arts such as judo and karate have their roots in Japan.
The Japanese language is interesting, too, with its many different alphabets and complicated grammar. Japan has unique artwork and many traditions that we in the West don't understand.
