The Tokyo that you see today is a truly modern megacity with the modern office towers, one of the best train/subway systems in world and is the most populous metropolitan area in the world at 39 million. Tokyo is however a very old city and was at one stage a castle town centred around Edo Castle, part of which is now the Tokyo Imperial Palace and the centre of the city.
