4. Eat 24-Karat Gold
Tokyo, Schmokyo. Skip the 11-hour flight and splurge on a seat at the 10-seat sushi bar at Urasawa in Beverly Hills, a bucket-list-busting, 3-5 hour omakase-style feast. The dishes are works of art — some are even sprinkled with caviar and 24-karat gold flakes (more on these two in a moment).
