The Kanto region lies in the southeastern part of Honshu and is dominated by the Kanto Plain, Japan’s largest plain. The climate is generally mild, and the four seasons are sharply delineated. This region, which includes such key cities as Tokyo, Yokohama, Kawasaki, Saitama, and Chiba, is the most populous region of Japan. The hub of the region—the Tokyo-Yokohama district—is the core of Japan’s commerce and industry. The Keihin Industrial Zone and the Keiyo Industrial Region, extending along the shore of Tokyo Bay, form the largest industrial zone of Japan.


The satellite suburbs, within about a two hours’ commuting distance from downtown Tokyo, are expanding, resulting in the urbanization of a large portion of the Kanto region. Though agricultural activity has decreased in general, it is still thriving in the areas to the east and north, and contributes to the region’s economy.


Tokyo is the capital of Japan. It is home to most large domestic corporations, foreign companies, and the head offices of the mass media. Tokyo is also a center of education.


東京還因是日本的文化和娛樂中心而聞名。豐富多彩的現代藝術和傳統藝術在這裡展現,古典音樂和流行音樂的旋律在一家又一家音樂廳裡飄蕩,博物館和美術館星羅棋佈,讓人流連忘返。稱為“ 鴿子(Hato)” 的城市觀光大巴按時刻表準時發車,您可乘坐這種大巴遊覽東京著名的景點,如東京塔、銀座和淺草等。日本的很多傳統活動和節日都在淺草舉行,它至今還保留著舊時東京的風貌。東京這個大都市由東京城區的23個行政區、27個市、5個町(鎮)和8個村組成。

The city is famous as a center of culture and entertainment. It offers a variety of modern and traditional arts. Classical and popular music are performed at Tokyo’s many concert halls, and there are numerous museums and art galleries. Sightseeing tours of the city by bus have regular scheduled departures. The bus, called Hato (pigeon), visits famous spots such as the Tokyo Tower, Ginza, and Asakusa. Asakusa, where many traditional events and festivals are held, still retains the atmosphere of old Tokyo. Metropolitan Tokyo consists of the 23 wards of urban Tokyo, 26 cities, 5 towns, and 8 villages.
