Locations

Tokyo is one of the largest and most densely populated cities in the world. With such an enormous geographical space and population comes a certain diversity within the individual neighborhoods of Tokyo. Visitors to Tokyo can see the Imperial Palace, countless museums, parks, and zoos, as well as enjoy varied and upscale shopping. Go Tokyo writes "Tokyo enjoys a long history of prosperity as Japan’s capital since 1603, when Tokugawa Ieyasu established his shogunate and named the city Edo. Today, with a population of about 13 million, it has grown into the largest of the 47 prefectures of Japan and indeed one of the greatest metropolises in the world. Comprising 23 special wards, 26 cities, 5 towns, and 8 villages, Tokyo is the center of various activities in Japan including politics, economy, and culture."
