The Appeal of Tokyo for Akira Morikawa
Tokyo's reliability and stability stands out among major cities worldwide. Trains come on time, and there are no power outages.
Work relies on people meeting commitments, and I think Tokyo is a very reliable city for work because of the rarity of sudden schedule changes.
However, it is so tightly structured that it might be difficult to enter from the outside because people from other countries are not accustomed to this type of stability.
In fact, I do hear that business with Japanese companies does not progress much initially. Once it ramps up, however, relationships often continue for a long time as long as commitments are met.
Many Japanese companies place more emphasis on the working environment for employees than short-term profits. This is why they achieve longer-term results that come over time.
Many more people will be coming to Japan ahead of the 2020 Olympics. I believe it is important to communicate the appeal of Tokyo even more than before in order to engage these people and stimulate Tokyo.
