Unlike say Rome, Paris or London, Japan’s capital is a relative newcomer to the global city scene. Still, in less than 500 short years, Tokyo has had more than its fair share of historical setbacks and triumphs, flourishing arts and devastating natural and man-made disasters.
Tokyo’s story begins in 1590, when the shoguns (Japan’s hereditary military dictators) moved their base from Kyoto to where Tokyo stands today. They named the city Edo, and although the Emperor remained in Kyoto, power and profit moved east with them.
Sealed off from the rest of the world for another two centuries, the Edo period was a time of samurai, tea ceremonies and calligraphy. When the shogunate fell in 1867, Emperor Meiji seized the real reins of power and moved to Edo. He renamed it Tokyo, established it as Japan’s capital, threw open the country’s borders and actively welcomed outside (particularly western) influence. He made Shinto the state religion, thus establishing himself as a divine being with total power over the nation.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, this whirlwind of change became known as the Meiji Revolution and it thrust Tokyo headlong into the 20th century. People flocked to the city from the countryside, educational standards were improving and arts and the theatre were blooming.
Then in 1923, Tokyo was devastated by the Great Kantō Earthquake. With over 100,000 dead and nearly 2 million left homeless, the city was still trying to recover when war swept across the world. Although Tokyo escaped the atomic bomb, WWII rained down over 100 other missiles onto the city, decimating buildings and halving the capital’s population in only five years.
Yet, somehow, Tokyo really did rise from the ashes, entering the 21st century as one of the greatest cities in the world.
