About the Action Plan

The Action Plan charts the course to the future to create the "New Tokyo" by realizing the three cities of Tokyo from the perspective of placing the Tokyo citizens first.

The New Tokyo :

  1. A Tokyo where all can live with peace of mind, hold hopes and lead active lives.
  2. A sustainable Tokyo that continues to generate growth.
  3. A Tokyo that shines throughout the world as the engine driving Japan's growth.

The Three Faces ("Cities") of Tokyo :

  • Safe City・・・
    We will protect the lives and assets of the Tokyo residents from all kinds of disasters, and build a dynamic and bustling Tokyo.
  • Diverse City・・・
    We will create a Tokyo that embraces diversity and is full of kindness and warmth, where everyone can lead vibrant lives and be active in society.
  • Smart City・・・
    As a global megacity and Japan's capital and engine driving the economy, we will create a sustainable Tokyo that can solve the challenges facing the megalopolis and continue growing to emerge victorious in the international competition among cities.
