Tokyo is one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the world. Have you ever wondered what are the most expensive areas of Tokyo?
Daikanyama is located in the Shibuya ward, but it feels completely different from the crowded areas near the Shibuya station. It is fashionable, modern and quiet. The price for a square meter in this area is around $27,000 making it one of the most expensive areas of Tokyo.
Hiroo is located close to other popular residential areas such as Roppongi and historically has been one of the most popular areas among wealthy citizens. Prices for a square meter in this area are around $13,000.
A home for many foreign residents and a place where many embassies are gathered, Azabu is no doubt one of the most prestigious areas to live. One square meter here will cost you about $18,000.
Aside from these three, there are much more expensive places and luxury houses around Tokyo. Even if you are not able to afford to live there, it might be interesting to visit and look around some of them.
