We also have large Metro Areas like NYC, DC, Boston, Chicago, LA, etc etc ...
Greater Tokyo + Keihanshin (Kyoto/Kobe/Osaka) - 53,250,984 souls.
NYC Metro + Chicago Metro + LA Metro - 41,187,051 souls.
Just combining the two most populous metro regions of Japan, the three most populous metro regions of the U.S. and comparing them.
Of course, Greater Tokyo + Keihanshin comprise a little under half the population of Japan.
NYC Metro + Chicago Metro + LA Metro comprise a little over one tenth the population of the United States.
Just saying. FWIW.--
