Abstract

Tokyo, the capital of Japan, today is the biggest metropolis in the world. In the period of one century, Tokyo has developed from the small fishing village of Edo to large global city and the important node in modern global world. Different challenges based on cultural differences between Japan and rest of the world, and multiple disasters (natural and anthropogenic) through the history had for sure left mark on the urban development of Tokyo. However, they did not succeed on slowing down that remarkable growth and development. Tokyo, as leader of economic development of Japan today faces many new challenges on the way of his constant development and growth but there is no doubt that those challenges will be solved thanks to many years of experience and huge potential for future growth which Tokyo surely has.
