Tokyo

Tokyo (東京,   Tōkyō?), formally Tokyo Metropolis (東京都,   Tōkyō-to?) is the capital and biggest city of Japan. Tokyo is one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, as well as the most popular target for kaiju. Located on the eastern side of the main island Honshū, Tokyo is unique among the prefectures, providing certain municipal services characteristic of a city.

Name

Tokyo was originally known as "Edo", meaning "estuary." Its name was changed to Tokyo (Tōkyō: tō (east) + kyō (capital)) when it became the de facto imperial capital in 1868.
