What Are the Most Expensive Cities in the World?

10. Nagoya, Japan 1 of 11

Nagoya is just the first of three Japanese cities that will grace this list of the most expensive cities in the world. The yen has been experiencing a lot of inflation, causing a rise in prices for practically everything, from housing to gas to food and everything in between.

A luxury two-bedroom apartment in Nagoya will cost about $2,551, and a cup of coffee averages around $6.38. Another thing that makes Nagoya expensive for both residents and visitors is the cost of gas, at $6.70 a gallon.
