Tokyo’s high quality of life

22 Sep

I just found that Monocle magazine ranked the “World’s Most Livable Cities (Quality Of Life)”.

Their criteria was:

  • Safety / low crime
  • International connectivity
  • Climate
  • Quality of architecture
  • Public transportation
  • Tolerance of others
  • Environmental issues and access to nature
  • Urban design
  • Business conditions
  • “Pro-active policy developments” and
  • Medical care

Tokyo ranked as the third most livable city in the world.

Their entire Top ten “most livable cities” are:

  1. Zürich, Switzerland
  2. Copenhagen, Denmark
  3. Tokyo, Japan
  4. Munich, Germany
  5. Helsinki, Finland
  6. Stockholm, Sweden
  7. Vienna, Austria
  8. Paris, France
  9. Melbourne, Australia
  10. Berlin, Germany

Tokyo runs like clockwork and its service culture beats any competition.

Personally, I think Tokyo should be number one! Especially in regards to safety, international connectivity, tolerance, access to nature, business conditions, medical care, and public transportation.
All of those are top-notch in Tokyo!
