Most ppl in Tokyo can't afford to live in the best place in Tokyo due to the budget constraint. Some people spend 2 hours ONE WAY only to commute to their office every weekday.

I mean most ppl has nothing to do with the best place to live in in Tokyo.

A very broad question - everyone will have their own personal preferences as to where they would like to live. I would like to live in Nezu, Yanaka or Akasaka area...

As others have pointed out, it all depends on your criteria. Are you looking for a convenient central location, or good value for money? Do you want someplace quiet, or a lively neighborhood with lots of bars and restaurants? And the nicest neighborhood in general might not be ideal if it's a long commute for you.

Just looking at housing market indicators, the most expensive rental housing is in the Bancho area (near Hanzomon and Kojimachi stations), and then Aoyama.
