Info about Tokyo

Area:
2187 km2
Overview

Tokyo, Japan's capital and the country's largest city, is one of 47 prefectures, with 23 city wards, Tokyo’s centre where live nearly 12 million people, 26 cities, 5 towns and 8 villages.
Before 1868, Tokyo was known as Edo owing its name to a small castle town in the 16th century, that became Japan's political centre. Little by little, Edo changed into one of the world's most populous cities. In 1868, the emperor and the capital were moved from Kyoto to Edo, later called Tokyo or eastern capital. Tokyo was partly destroyed by the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 and the air raids of 1945.

Overall Guide : Awesome place to visit, nice citizens. Many places to go, there is a lot of great gardens to visit, along with some historical buildings/temples. I really liked Disney Resort though, I was extremely happy with the amount of cosplay-ers there,... more but VERY disappointed as Sora from Kingdom Hearts was not wandering around with Donald and Goofy. Overall; Tokyo is a great place to visit, it's fun, but a little overpriced.
Not to be missed Temples , Gardens , Disney Resort

Overall Guide : Japan is the most beautiful country. Even though i'm a Filipino i want to be Japanese, because the Japanese people are helpful, diligent, intelligent, artistic etc. For me the most peaceful country is Japan and the most wealthy country too!... more I'm really a big fan of Japan, but of course I like Japan too because of Anime too because i want to draw Anime and I'm a certified Otaku.

Overall Guide : Tokyo City is situated on the fertile eastern coastal strip of Japan's central island, Honshu. It has much historical importance and an exceptionally rich culture. As I am a history and culture freak myself, I would recommend whole heartedly a... more thorough survey of Tokyo City to the people who hunger for richness of culture and variety.

Overall Guide : Tokyo is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I've been lucky enough to live there for almost a year, and now I can't live anywhere else. The city is functional in every way, transport is efficient, the... more streets are clean, you are guaranteed 100% safety. Unfortunately it's very expensive, but believe me, it's worth it. It's a place to see and in which you can live.

Overall Guide : The brand new Tokyo Sky Tree, a communications tower about 650 metres high. The wonderful parks, especially the Yoyogi on Sundays, it's full of life and eccentrics, then you can have lunch at Sushi Zanmai in Tsukiji. The wonderful autumn... more colours in the city.
