Tokyo, capital of Japan and the most populated metropolitan area in the world, with more than 26 million inhabitants in 2000. Tokyo is located at the head of Tokyo Bay, midway along the eastern coast of Honshu, the largest of the four main islands of the Japanese archipelago.

Today Tokyo is Japan’s financial, industrial, commercial, educational, and cultural center; it is also the country’s principal contact point for trade and diplomatic relations with the rest of the world.

In many ways Tokyo is also something of a modern-day utopia. Trains run on time; the crime rate is hardly worth worrying about; shops and vending machines provide everything you could need (and many things you never thought you needed) 24 hours a day; the people wear the coolest fashions, eat in fabulous restaurants and party in the hippest clubs.

Tokyo has an very large economy, with about 800,000 businesses of all kinds and 8 million workers. Service industries, such as wholesale and retail trade, finance, and insurance, made up the largest sector of the economy. Secondary industries ranked second, with around 30 percent of the labor force. Manufacturing dominates the secondary industries category and comprises about 20 percent of Tokyo’s total labour force. Jobs in transportation account for most of the other secondary employment. There has been a continuous decline in manufacturing (which employed almost one-third of the labor force in 1970) and a transfer and greater emphasis on services.
Tokyo is especially important as the headquarters for most private companies in Japan, as well as the nation’s center for finance, government, communications, and education. It also has the highest concentration of foreign companies doing business in Japan. For this reason there are a number of International schools in Tokyo.
