The first thing that probably comes to mind when you think about Tokyo is a crowded city that never sleeps. Images of a city filled with every pleasure imaginable and an endless supply of entertainment for any variety of taste probably also comes to mind. Tokyo is all this and so much more! In many ways being in Tokyo is like having been dropped into a loud and flashy anime-based video game. If you’re up for the excitement then Tokyo may just be the ideal destination for launching your cyber security career!

Background on Tokyo

Tokyo serves dual roles as both the capital of Japan as well as its largest city. Tokyo has a special designation as the seat of government of Japan, but is officially governed as a metropolitan prefecture, which include 39 municipalities as well as two outlying island chains. The combined population of these regions is 13 million people!

Tokyo has a humid, subtropical climate with hot humid summers and relatively mild winters with occasional stretches of cool weather. There is a myriad of cultural activities and resources in Tokyo that range from art, music, theater, a rich nightlife, along with a wealth of sporting events that include sumo wrestling and a national passion for baseball.

Tokyo, as well as the rest of Japan, does not have a very diverse population but foreign nationals make up a vital component of the workforce and population in Tokyo with the most common being Chinese, Korean, Filipino, American, British, Brazilian and French. The Japanese language is not an easy language to learn for foreigners, but the good news is that English is commonly spoken throughout Tokyo.

Tokyo is ranked as one of the world’s most expensive cities and rent and food can take a large chunk out of your paycheck. On the positive side, Tokyo is also rated as one of the world’s most livable cities and is a very safe place to live. But don’t worry, Tokyo cyber security jobs pay extremely well!
