Tokyo Population

Sun Dec 02, 2001 7:26 am

My vice-principal is coming home from Japan, and he gave us all sorts of questions for a contest, and the only one I can't get is "What is the ranking of Tokyo compared to all other worldwide cities?"

Meaning, compared to all the other cities in the world, where does Tokyo lie in the list (1st, 3rd, 20th, etc.)

Please help ASAP, as I need these tomorrow, as he is returning home on Monday, and I don't go online before I leave for school.

If i am not mistaken its somewhere around 28 million people. Thats a lot, considering Canada only has 30 million spread out the whole country.

Actually my info sources said that Tokyos Metropolitan area including Toyko obviously is about 32 million, MORE than all the People of Canada.
Yet Canada is the second largest Country. its like they deserve this big hunk of land and we deserve Japan.

I cant belive it,.
Its within the top 3 or top 5.

SAo Paulo is like the crowdest. and then Mexico city, and then Tokyo, and then Like New York City/ Moscow/ Seouls pretty topnotch.
And then Flint!  Smile
