Scott Eastwood seems a natural choice for an action star, even if you didn’t know that the son of legendary actor-director Clint recently starred in Suicide Squad, The Fate of the Furious and now the upcoming Pacific Rim Uprising.
When he isn’t in front of the camera, the 31-year-old can be found outdoors partaking in an adrenaline-pumping activity. Eastwood’s Instagram feed documents him hiking California’s 211-mile-long John Muir Trail, boxing, spying a bear and her cub in the Rocky Mountains, practicing archery and surfing everywhere. (But he doesn’t take himself too seriously — he also poses as a merman and frequently makes a “tiger face” with claws.)
His latest adventure took place in Tokyo. As part of a partnership, Japanese airline All Nippon Airways sent Eastwood there for his first trip to the city. His itinerary included visiting Sensoji in Asakusa, the city’s oldest temple; Meiji, Tokyo’s renowned Shinto shrine; Harajuku, the district known for its colorful, playful street fashion; Shibuya Crossing, one of the busiest pedestrian intersections in the world; and picturesque Shinjuku Gyoen Park.
While at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, the laidback, gracious Eastwood spoke with us on the phone to relay his Tokyo adventures and share his favorite hidden-gem restaurant in his home of San Diego (another tip: he’s co-owner of San Diego’s Saddle Bar, a place that he describes as a “fun neighborhood bar”).
