Tokyo | City of History

Andy Warhol once said, “The most beautiful thing in Tokyo is McDonald's,” but then Warhol had a penchant for saying the unexpected (and apparently really liked McDonald’s). Tokyo, of course, is one of the great metropolitan centers of the world, a vibrant, bustling capital city that is one of the three global financial strongholds, along with New York and London. Originally a humble fishing village known as “Edo” (meaning “estuary,” because it sits in Tokyo Bay), it grew into a military stronghold and the country’s de facto capital, changing its name to Tokyo (meaning “Eastern capital”) when it became Japan’s Imperial capital in 1868.
