{i} capital city of Japan
the capital and largest city of Japan, and its main financial and business centre. Population: 11,549,100 (1995). Japanese Tky formerly (until 1868) Edo City (pop., 2000 prelim.: city, 8,134,408; 2001 est.: metro. area, 12,138,000), capital of Japan, in east-central Honshu. The site, on Tokyo Bay, has been inhabited since ancient times, and the small fishing village of Edo existed there for centuries before it became the capital of the Tokugawa shogunate in 1603 (see Tokugawa period). By the 19th century it was one of the largest cities in the world, with a population exceeding 1,000,000. Under the Meiji Restoration, in 1868 it replaced Kyto as the imperial capital, and Edo was renamed Tokyo ("Eastern Capital"). A massive earthquake in 1923 destroyed most of the city and killed more than 100,000 people, but it was largely rebuilt by 1930. Much of it was again devastated by U.S. bombing during World War II and had to be reconstructed. The Summer Olympic Games were held there in 1964. Tokyo is the administrative, cultural, financial, commercial, and educational centre of Japan and the focus of an extensive urban complex that includes Kawasaki and Yokohama. Attractions include the Imperial Palace, encircled by stone-walled moats and broad gardens, and numerous temples and shrines. There are some 150 institutions of higher learning, including the University of Tokyo (1877). Tokyo Bay Tokyo Rose Tokyo Stock Exchange Tokyo University of Edo culture
