Tokyo Fortune 500

Fortune Global 500 is a ranking with the top 500 worldwide corporations based on their revenue. Here there is the ranking, but what I find more interesting is the breakdown by city.

Position- City – Country – Number of companies listed on Fortune 500

1 .- Tokyo – Japan – (50)
2 .- Paris – France – (26)
3 .- New York – United States – (22)

3 .- London – United Kingdom – (22)
4 .- Beijing – China – (18)
5 .- Seoul – South Korea – (10)
6 .- Toronto – Canada – (9)
7 .- Madrid – Spain – (8)
8 .- Zürich – Switzerland – (7)
8 .- Houston – United States – (7)
9 .- Munich – Germany – (6)
9 .- Osaka – Japan – (6)
10 .- Rome – Italy – (5)

Tokyo has almost double Fortune 500 companies than Paris! Furthermore, the United States and Japan are the only two countries with more than one city in the top 10. But if we look at the ranking by countries instead of cities, the United States has more than double than Japan. It seems here in Japan big companies are pretty centralized in Tokyo.

1 United States (162)
2 Japan (67)
3 France (38)

4 Germany (37)
5 United Kingdom (34)
6 China (24)
7 Canada (16)
7 The Netherlands (16)
9 South Korea (14)
10 Switzerland (13)
11 Italy (10)
12 Spain (9)
