" Tokyo " Japanese calligraphy


" 東京 " ( tō - kyō ). It is translated as Tokyo (capital of Japan).    

This character is written by KanziRegular script.    

Etymology :  ( east ) +  ( capital city )   

  Tokyo was renamed in September 1868 from the city of Edo, the Tokugawa shogunate.

Tenno emperor emigrated from Kyoto at that time.

Of course, the Emperor's family home is still in Kyoto.

It is the Imperial Palace.
