    View of Tokyo, Japan

    Tokyo, located on the eastern side of the main island of Honshu, is the core of the most populated area in the world (urban area 38M).

Its stringent policy of seclusion ended in 1854 and opened Japan to outside trade. In 1869, the 17-year-old Emperor Meiji moved to Edo, and the city was renamed Tokyo (meaning Eastern Capital).
