Tokyo is Japan’s famous capital city, located on the main island of Japan. The world’s largest city has been the political, economic, and cultural center of Japan for many decades. The vibrant city has many great amazing experiences, beautiful places, and fun things to offer. But with over 13 million inhabitants and covering a vast area of approximately 2,194 ㎢, knowing where to go and which area to visit, can be a little challenging.
The name “Tokyo” can refer to the different Tokyo: Tokyo within 23 wards, Tokyo Metropolis, and The Greater Tokyo Area (which also includes Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, and Yamanashi). When talking about Tokyo, people are often referring to Tokyo within 23 wards.
Tokyo is, without a doubt, the most visited city by foreign tourists in Japan and for many the starting point for their trip to Japan. The city has several Shinkansen lines and is connected to the rest of the world by the two international airports of Narita Airport and Haneda Airport.
