Day 583 { I Passed/Tokyo Still Behind NY, London And Paris } Friday, October 23, 2009


Day 583 { I Passed / Tokyo Still Behind NY, London And Paris }

Went to Karate today after work, and the main teacher told me that I passed. So That's out of the way.. But he didn't say by how much, and he didn't want to tell me. He said I should wait until graduation, which will be in the next 2-3 weeks. I also don't know if I am a yellow belt or an orange belt just yet.

N.Y., London, Paris still beat Tokyo

Factoring together culture, environment, economy and accessibility, Tokyo ranks fourth out of 35 major cities worldwide and only, but still, lags behind leader New York, No. 2 London and third-place Paris, but it has the potential to go higher, a report released Thursday by an urban development research center says.

Prepared in Japan, the report ranks cities based on how attractive they are to businesses, researchers, artists, visitors and residents. Japanese and foreign experts assessed 69 indicators on the economy, culture, environment, accessibility, particularly in regards to airports, and living standards.

Like last year, when the rankings were first published, Tokyo, as a city, trailed New York, London and Paris.
