I think number of millionaires is a better way to measure wealth.

On this list it makes Tokyo look more poor than all those Chinese cities but if you look at the average income only Singapore is richer.

This ranking tells more about the competitiveness of a city than its average income. Having more billionnaires means the city has more vibrant economy, especially in terms of new technology

in terms of net worth, most Tokyo residents lag behind some major Chinese cities. The real estate price in core Chinese cities may be 5 times higher than Tokyo

Japan's No. 1 billionnaire Son got rich because of his investment in Alibaba. No. 2 billionnaire is selling clothes in Uniqlo.
LOL

All those Japanese giants in electronics are either dead or near dead. All those companies' value combined may be only a fraction of Alibaba

It's amazing how far those Japanese electronic giants have fallen. Back in the 80's and 90's, companies like Sony, Toshiba, Panasonic, JVC, etc. were the most dominant in the world.
