Tokyo, officially the Tokyo Metropolis, is the capital and most populous prefecture of Japan. Located at the head of Tokyo Bay, the prefecture forms part of the Kantō region on the central Pacific coast of Japan's main island of Honshu. Tokyo is the political and economic center of the country, as well as the seat of the Emperor of Japan and the national government. As of 2021, the prefecture has an estimated population of 14.04 million. The Greater Tokyo Area is the most populous metropolitan area in the world, with an estimated 37.468 million residents in 2018.
Originally a fishing village, named Edo, the city became a prominent political center in 1603, when it became the seat of the Tokugawa shogunate. By the mid-18th century, Edo was one of the most populous cities in the world at over one million. Following the end of the shogunate in 1868, the imperial capital in Kyoto was moved to the city, which was renamed Tokyo (literally "eastern capital"). Tokyo was devastated by the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake, and again by Allied bombing raids during World War II. Beginning in the 1950s, the city underwent rapid reconstruction and expansion, going on to lead Japan's post-war economic recovery. Since 1943, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has administered the prefecture's 23 special wards (formerly Tokyo City), various bed towns and suburbs in the western area, and two outlying island chains.
How to Reach
Tokyo has well-established connections to every major city around the world, and every major airline lands at Narita Airport, the most important airport in Tokyo. You can board flights like Air India, Lufthansa, Jet Airways, and others to Tokyo, and reach the destination with convenience. The most comfortable way of travel between Narita Airport and Tokyo Station is the JR Narita Express (NEX). The one-way journey takes roughly one hour, costs around 3000 yen, and is fully covered by the Japan Rail Pass, JR Tokyo Wide Area Pass and some other JR passes. There are departures every 30 to 60 minutes
Tokyo is the centre of railways and the subway in Japan, with connections to every single city in Japan. The subway and the railways can be used with a rechargeable card, but a map is a must as some of the railways and subway lines are slightly difficult to navigate.
Tokyo also has a good bus service, for which rechargeable cards are also available. There are inter-city buses, as well as intra-city bus services. Most intra-city buses require small change, so it is advisable to carry coins and JPY 1000 notes.
Waterways are only applicable from island-to-island in Japan, so from Kyuushu one can take the ferry to Honshu to visit Tokyo.
Tokyo has a dense network of railway lines, roads and subways all operated by different companies, under private partnership. This may be of some inconvenience to tourists as each company has a different map for its own territory. Hence, it is advisable to download the Tokyo Subway Map available exclusively at tokyo subway map website in 8 different languages. Japanês most prominent railways line is the JR Yamanote Line, which connects many cities together, conveniently placing Tokyo at the centre. Prepaid IC cards are the preferred way to get around Tokyo, for every service accepts these cards, including cabs and buses. Only on days tourists consider using many subway lines to travel around Tokyo, an unlimited travel pass is advisable - Tokyo Free Kippu (JPY 1590) and Tokyo Metro 24-hour Ticket (JPY 600) are two options tourists may consider. The Japan Rail Pass and JR Tokyo Wide Pass are valid only on JR trains and the Tokyo Monorail. They cannot be used on subways or any other non-JR train.
Subways and trains are the best way to get around Tokyo. A prepaid Suica or Pasmo card is the BEST way to pay for transport. You can buy a Suica card online at Voyagin.com for pickup at the airport. Taxis are excellent but rather expensive. Buses aren't recommended for short-term visitors.
