Monocle magazine, out of Great Britain, has named Tokyo "the most livable city" in the world.
According to an article in The Japan Times:
The British lifestyle magazine Monocle has declared Tokyo the most livable city in the world in its annual quality of life survey, the company said Thursday.
It was the first time that Tokyo has topped the list since the magazine launched the ranking nine years ago. Japan’s capital finished in second place last year.
Tokyo earned high marks for its “defining paradox of heart-stopping size and concurrent feeling of peace and quiet,” the magazine said.
Fukuoka and Kyoto also made the top 25, ranking 12th and 14th.To read more, go here,
