What Time Tokyo Residents Get Home From Work

Yesterday I reported the average time of coming home from work among Japanese people. The average time is 19:30 (arrival time) for men. But it was very different from my impression. I am living in Tokyo, and many workers around me do not reach home before 19:30. I checked yesterday's data by region, and found the average coming home time of Tokyo residents is 20:28. It is one hour later than the nation's average. There is much work in Tokyo.
