So said a friend of mine. Worth pointing out she lives in Vienna, having moved there from London, so it's not like she's averse to capitals. I think it came up from a conversation about when I visited Tokyo, and how things were both very different but also still somewhat familiar. It could possibly be extended to "most major cities"; NYC, for example, probably fits the same bill. Instinctively it feels true, but I'm conscious I haven't traveled that much (relative to some; obviously much more than others) and also often not beyond capitals and major cities.
