Tokyo

From its beginnings as a tiny fishing village in what was known as the Musashi Province, Tokyo is the capital city of Japan and the Tokyo Metropolis holds the honor of being the largest metropolitan area in the world. It is home to the Japanese government as well as the Japanese Imperial Palace. The name Tokyo literally means "Eastern Capital" in English.

As would be expected of a city of its size, Tokyo is on the cutting edge of everything from architecture, technology, and fashion, to food, and pop culture. Within the past century, the city of Tokyo has experienced two near-complete destructions of the city. The first was in 1923 after the Great Kanto earthquake, which at the time was the largest ever recorded, the second was during World War II when the city endured extensive bombing. These incidents have been a leading reason behind Tokyo's innovative architecture.
