Tokyo is an amazing modern metropolis that is hard to compare with any other city in the world. Its history dates back to the 12th century, when a small fishing village of Edo still existed on the site of Tokyo.

Today, more than 13 million people live in the Japanese capital, and the number of tourists who want to see the streets sparkling with neon lights is growing every year.
Tokyo was originally called Edo, which means "mouth of the river." By the end of the 12th century, the village received the first fortifications in the form of ditches and walls, inside which a castle was built. Some of the manors, walls and ditches are still preserved in a form close to their original form.
