Tokyo (東京 Tōkyō), was the capital of Japan from 1868 until 2080. Its Metro population reached 50,000,000 in year 2100.
Tokyo became a Global Power City and ranked Alpha++ in 2070 alongside with Nanjing and Beijing, following the decline of New York City and London. In 2080, the capital of Japan was relocated to Kobe shortly after becoming a republic.
Despite the move, Tokyo continued to prosper and by 2130 was nicknamed, alongside with Beijing, as the "The Centre of the Universe". The Japanese cities of Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe, and Sapporo went on to become major cities like Tokyo. In 2200, the Prefectures of Gunma, Tochigi, Ibaraki, Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, and Yamanashi went on to merge into Tokyo. After the merger, the city's area became 36,889.28 squared kilometres and its population jumped up to 60,000,000.
In Year 16,000, Tokyo would become the capital of the Universal Organisation, the League of Galaxies.
