Tokyo is the capital city of Japan and is considered to be the most populous metropolitan area in the world as of 2018. The city is the seat of the Japanese Emperor, the Japanese Government, and the National Legislature. The former name of Tokyo was Edo. It was given by the 17th-century ruler Tokugawa Ieyasu when he made the area his headquarters in the year 1603. Things get a bit confusing for first-timers in Tokyo as the wards of Tokyo Prefecture contain different districts (with different unique characteristics), and the locals refer to these districts as “cities” colloquially! Tokyo is a particularly well-traveled destination in recent years. It is known for its Cherry blossoms, colorful cityscape, street fashion, museums, etc. This is just some overview of the city, as apart from this, the bustling metropolis has a lot more to offer.
