Tokyo is the world’s largest city with 37 million inhabitants:

Tokyo is a booming city—not only by Japanese standards, but also compared to cities around the world.

With around 37 million people living in Tokyo, it’s the world’s largest city when it comes to population size, according to Reuters.

The next largest city is Delhi, India, (population 29 million) and Shanghai, China (population 26 million).

Just look at any Tokyo facts and you’ll see many around the city’s massive population. People who visit Japan for the first time are often surprised by the sheer mass of people in Tokyo’s rush-hour trains or in Shibuya Crossing, the busiest intersection on the planet.

Sightseeing spots, too, are always to crowded and even when walking down the street in a popular area, it’s often hard to not bump into someone.

According to the 2019 update of Demographia World Urban Areas, Tokyoo is the largest “Megacity” in the world!

Tokyo houses about 10% of Japan’s population. If you include the greater Tokyoo metro area of Kanagawa, Saitama, and Chiba, the total population of Tokyo reaches 38 million people!

The total population of Japan is about 127 million people, so that’s a whopping 30% – and makes Tokyoo the most populous urban area in the world.

Here, we compare the population of Tokyoo to other Japanese prefectures and cities around the world, and will also take a look at changes and issues regarding the future.
