Customized Tours in Tokyo

Tokyo, formerly known as Edo, the capital of Japan, was once a challenging place to establish a city due to frequent floods caused by the raging rivers from the Kanto Mountains. However, in the early 17th century, Tokugawa Ieyasu decided to make this land the political center for the Tokugawa shogunate, initiating extensive civil engineering works to control flooding and laying the foundation for urban development. His successors as shogun continued to expand the city, with Edo Castle at its core. Following the collapse of the Tokugawa shogunate in 1868, Edo Castle became the Imperial Palace, the residence of the Emperor. Edo was renamed Tokyo, and it evolved into a modern metropolis.

Throughout its modern history, Tokyo faced two major devastations. First, the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, and second, the aerial bombings by the U.S. military in 1945. In both instances, Tokyo managed to rebuild and transform into its present-day form. Tokyo today is a unique blend of preserving the atmosphere of Edo while flourishing as a modern city. I hope you enjoy the coexistence of these two aspects in Tokyo.
