It was Tokyo City until 1943.
If Tokyo ward section is regarded as one city, it will be the largest city in Japan.
Tokyo's 23 wards include the Imperial Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the Supreme Court, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office.

 

In 1590, Ieyasu Tokugawa moved from Sunpu to Edo Castle in Edo (Tokyo).
Edo Castle at this time was small, and the front of Edo Castle was the sea.
Tokugawa Ieyasu cut through mountain, carried out a large-scale reclamation work, and made the castle town of Edo.
In 1695 Edo became the city with the largest population in Japan, and in the 18th century it became a city with 1 million people.
Around this time, the population of London was about 850,000.

 

Currently, Tokyo is spreading not only politics and economy but also many new cultures.
In addition, there are many restaurants with a Michelin star in Tokyo. The manager of the Michelin Guide says Tokyo as "the gastronomic capital of the world".
