As far as the metropolitan area, Tokyo is the largest in the world. I believe the Metropolitan area, including Yokohama City and Kawasaki City, has a population somewhere around 34,000,000. That's a mind-baffling figure.

Relative to where you live, Tokyo is crowded beyond imagination. The jam-packed streets, stores, trains, and just about everywhere, can be both exciting and frustrating at times.

No matter how many years you spend in Tokyo I doubt you can see it all. Many shops and restaurants are changing all the time. It’s not uncommon to go back to a restaurant in a couple years to find another one has replaced it.

The photo above was taken from Tokyo Tower. At 333 meters tall, it is the world's tallest self-supporting steel tower. Excellent views from this tower can be seen on Tokyo Tower’s English web site.
