Tokyo Metropolis (東京都, Tōkyō-to) is the official name for of the traditional city of Tokyo (東京市, Tōkyō-shi) (1869-1943) and the associated municipalities of what was formerly Tokyo Prefecture (東京府, Tōkyō-fu) (1869-1943).[2]It is the capital city and a prefecture of Japan on the island of Honshu.

Greater Tokyo includes land in the Kantō region and also the Izu Islands and Ogasawara Islands.[3]Ten percent (10%) of the Japanese people live in Tokyo, and as many as twenty percent (20%) of the population live around it. As of 2007, the population was 12,790,000.Tokyo is in a part of Japan called the Kantō Plain. Two big rivers run through Tokyo. One is the Arakawa River which runs from the north to the south, and flows into Tokyo Bay. The other is the Tama River which runs from the west to the east. The Tama River is a border between Tokyo and its neighbor city, Kawasaki.

History

In 1943, Tokyo prefecture's municipalities and city of Tokyo were associated in a special way.[2] The administration of Tokyo city merged with the administration of Tokyo Prefecture.[4] Tokyo Metropolis is governed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
