From Edo to Tokyo

From Edo to Tokyo

Tokyo began as a fishing village. It was first named Edo and was appointed as the seat of the Tokugawa shogunate in 1603. By the 18th century, it grew into one of the world's most populous cities.

The city benefited from peace (the Pax Tokugawa), where the city's resources were used for economic development. Then, in 1868, the Tokugawa shogunate ended, and the new imperial court moved to Edo and renamed the city Tokyo - meaning "eastern capital."
