According to a survey by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government*, the number of people who moved into Tokyo in 2021 compared to those who moved out will be the lowest in the past 10 years. Due to the establishment of remote work and the increase in migration to neighboring prefectures of Tokyo, almost all generations have an excess of migrants, but only Generation Z, aged 15 to 29, has an excess of migrants exceeding 70,000.
