Tokyo Selected Best City in the World Key Visual
Tokyo has been selected Number 1 in Condé Nast Traveler’s US Edition and UK Edition of “The Best Cities in the World: 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards.” Readers of the popular magazine for discerning travelers voted Tokyo for the top of the best cities list for the first time in two years in the US edition, and for the first time ever in the UK edition.
The city’s top ranking may be attributed to a number of initiatives, including tourism promotion programs and improved tourist infrastructure, which were achieved through cooperative efforts between the government and the private sector.
As a truly world-leading city in international tourism, Tokyo is working to further attract visitors by enhancing its appeal as a place where tradition and innovation coexist.
