Either Beijing or San Francisco is not so different from Tokyo or New York, though in Beijing or San Francisco, people look a little more relaxed. Less tensed. All the cities are surrounded by concrete and steel. In my eyes, Tokyo is the worst. To feel a touch of nature, you need to travel either by train or by car for more than 2 hours from downtown, Tokyo.
I am not really living in middle of city, San Francisco, but I am close enough to it. Still I can enjoy ocean side and natures. squirrels are everywhere. If I drive 10 - 15 minutes to the foot of mountains, Pacific Ocean side whereas there are 6 mils trail for people to enjoy walking, jogging, bicycle riding, I can meet deers, even.
-Left My Neighbor Raccoon-
At night, if you stay up late, you may come across raccoons or skunks. In Tokyo, or at least in the area 60 minutes from center of it, you will never ever be able to experience these. This is another reason I love living in San Francisco, Bay Area.
