TokyoAZ is our new business directory, aiming to bring the best of Tokyo to all of its overseas visitors.

Tokyo is the largest City in the world, comprised of 23 wards, 26 cities, seven towns, and eight villages., with a total population of 13.62 Million people.

Originally a small fishing village called Edo (江戸), meaning, "estuary", it soon became the imperial capital with the arrival of Emperor Meiji in 1868. Its name was then changed to Tokyo (東京 Tōkyō; tō "east", and kyō "capital")

A bustling cosmopolitan city, Tokyo is the center of Japanese culture, finance, and government. It is a major transportation hub and a world economic, industrial and financial center, hosting more Fortune 500 companies than any other city in the world.

Tokyo has also won many accolades over recent years, such as "Best overall experience" from TripAdvisor,  "helpfulness of locals", "best nightlife", "best shopping", "best local public transport" and "cleanliness of streets". In 2015, Tokyo was named by the Monocle magazine as the Most Liveable City in the world. Tokyo has also won more Michelin stars than any other city for many of its categories, including of course its vast selection of great Hotels and Restaurants.

A safe city... Virtually crime free - Tokyo ranked number one in the Worldwide Safe Cities Index.

A young city... The 2016 edition of QS Best Student Cities ranked Tokyo as the 3rd-best city in the world to be a university student.

An Olympic City... Tokyo hosted the Summer Olympics back in 1964 and in 2020 will host the Summer Olympics and the Summer Paralympics.

There is so much happening here and so much more to come. There are many good websites already out there giving great information about this fine huge city. We hope that TokyoAZ will grow steadily and be a useful additional resource for all visitors to Tokyo over the coming months and years leading up to 2020 and beyond.
