Tokyo tops the world as the safest city in the world for the third time according to a report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). The EIU ranked 60 cities around the world based on digital security, health security, infrastructure, and personal security. This year, the EIU also focused on environmental factors called “urban resilience”: the strength of a city to rebound from shock. According to categories, Tokyo also topped the list in terms of its digital security. Singapore, on the other hand, was higher in terms of infrastructure and personal security followed by Osaka.

A report also added that Tokyo and Osaka are anticipated to experience a decrease in population due to low migration and birthrates. This will help to develop the security in cities such as Tokyo and Osaka but could be tough for some countries that have a fast-rising population like China and India. On the other hand, Amsterdam was ranked fourth on the index and other cities in Asia such as Beijing on 31st and Shanghai at 32nd on the list.
