Tokyo finally returns to net inflow of residents 

Tokyo’s resident population is bouncing back into positive territory as the effects of the coronavirus on in-person studying and remote work start to wane. Since the official end of the semi-state of emergency on March 21, 2022, the mood has shifted with events and meetings held in person again, office workers returning to the office, and students returning to campus.

According to the Statistics Bureau of Japan, for the first four months of 2022, the Tokyo metropolitan area has seen a net migration increase compared to the same months in 2021 as more people move into the city than move out. 

The total population of Japanese residents in the Tokyo metropolitan area has increased by 14,686 between January and May 1, 2022, as reported by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Statistics Division.
