If you went back to the very first posts in this thread everyone has been talking about which is better for living in. Only you guys are talking about world importance.


People come to city data to learn about how the city is not about how many billionaires it has or if it seats the UN. This doesnt matter to the common person at all, it has 0 relevance. City data is all about stats of crime weather wealth education etc this is what people care about when comparing which city is better to live in, not if it has alot of billionares that you will most likely never be. And BTW NYC has a much higher poor-rich gap than tokyo does. Most japanese are comfortably middle class, we dont have such a huge income disparities as in the US.

I think you don't understand what this website is about!

Well it goes both ways, because you were not talking about where is it better to live. You are talking about:

"Clean, safe, infrastructure, healthcare yes basically about everything for living a good life.

And no hip hop fasion is not prevalent in tokyo at all LOL. Not even 1 hip hop song is in oricon right now (japanese music charts). Most japanese guys in tokyo wax their hair and wear fitted button shirts and jeans. I'd say around 10-25% of tokyo youth dress even remotely hip hop style. Tokyo is all about rock and pop styles. Now if we're talking about Osaka than itd be more like 50%. Yes tokyo has many hip hop fashion stores, just like it has tons of fashion stores for every fashion. Tokyo is where most japanese based companies are, but without a doubt almost all the people who buy those clothes are from Osaka. Osaka has wayyyy more hip hop stores than tokyo. Trust me I'm from Osaka and I'm into hip hop myself lol.

BTW you're not defending your city you're just being choosing to not look at the statistics and facts. Everysingle study and statistics shows tokyo is better in all the key areas to making living in a city good. I dont know what youre trying to dispute. Tokyo ranks better in crime rate,infrastructure,healthcare,efficiency,technolo gy etc. Even when it comes to food tokyo has ranked #1 for the past 2 years. "

I say that you went off the topic as well, so I do not think that you know what is this website is about, because if you were another person you would stay on topic too.

Um that was a response to someone making a false statement (it's a response the person who goes offtopic makes the first statement and hello that wasn't me LOL). Everysingle one of my posts was about quality of life thats it. The new yorkers keep bringing up irrelevant things like the UN and parrades all I'm doing is responding. Why dont you quote him for randomly talking about fasion and telling me tokyo people dress like hip hop?

In everysingle one of my responses i keep talking about the things for quality of life. Even the one you quoted look at the first sentence and the last paragraph I kept trying to get it on topic so you...really failed there LOL.

"Cultural exchange" is completely by opnion. Why is London above NYC when NYC is more multi cultural? And for many americans tokyo is much more of a cultural shock and experience than NYC is. You cant measure that on a graph.
Well, you can't really compare the cultural shock to Americans.. that's not really fair. Of course, going to a country where a lot of people don't speak your language and act in different ways is going to have more culture shock than someplace that's already in your country. We'd have to find people coming from a country that isn't related to either USA or Japan, but either way... I think the whole thing is really subjective, culture shock depends on the person, not really where they're from, in most cases.
