Tokyo is the business center of the country as well as the home of the Japanese emperor and the seat of the national government.
Tokyo is often considered part of the Greater Tokyo Area, which consists of Tokyo prefecture itself and the surrounding prefectures of Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba.
Tokyo literally means "eastern capital" in Japanese, to mean to oppose to an old capital in west, Kyoto, which was renamed "Saikyo", meaning "western capital", for a period of time.
