    Rich neighbourhoods in Tokyo

    Tokyo is a huge metropolis. Most people live in apartments or small houses. But where do the super rich live ? What's Tokyo's equivalent of Beverly Hills or Upper East Side, where celebrities or big company owners have their villas ?

    According to a ranking I found on a Japanese site, the up cust resides in these neighbourhoods :

    Setagaya Ward

    - Shōtō
    - Seijō
    - Tsurumaki

    Ōta Ward

    - Denenchōfu
    - Todoroki

    Meguro Ward

    - Aobadai

    Minato Ward

    - Shirokanedai
    - Higashi Gotanda
    - Minami Aoyama
    - Minami Azabu

    Bunkyō Ward

    - Kohinata

    Many rich Tokyoites have a second residence in the mountain resort of Karuizawa.

    The municipality with the highest average income in Japan is Ashiya (芦屋) between Kobe and Osaka.

    I wonder what Japanese villas look like. Is there any Californian style villas with swimming pool and tennis court in those rich neighbourhoods ? Anything fancy looking like European castles ?
