History of Tokyo[change source]

The article about Tokyo (東京, Tōkyō, "Eastern Capital") covers everything about Tokyo from 1457 through the present.

The relationship between the versions of Tokyo is not easy to simplify:

  • 1457-1869: Edo (江戸, Edō), see Edo
  • 1869-1943: Tokyo-fu (東京府), see Tokyo Prefecture
  • 1869-1943: City of Tokyo (東京市, Tōkyō-shi), see Tokyo, Tokyo
  • 1943-present: Tokyo Metropolis (東京都, Tōkyō-to), see Tokyo

Is there a better way to parse this? --Horeki (talk) 02:20, 26 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]
