Tokyo advances to Top 3 among Global Cities

The latest revision of the Global Power City Index (GPCI) has ranked Tokyo in 3rd place in its evaluation of the world’s major cities. Tokyo overtook Paris to make it into the top 3 for the first time.

The GPCI first published in 2008 by The Mori Memorial Foundation’s Institute for Urban Strategies evaluates major cities in 6 categories, main functions representing city strength (Economy, Research and Development, Cultural Interaction, Livability, Environment, and Accessibility)

London retains its top position, with New York in 2nd place.

The institute says Tokyo’s score was boosted by an increase in the number of foreign visitors and more direct flights connecting the city with overseas destinations.
