History

 

A long time ago, like many towns along the coast, Tokyo was a small fishing village, under the name Edo, which means “estuary”. It got more importance when Ota Dokan built what was then known as Edo Castle. Present-day Tokyo can of course not be compared to the Edo of the past, but Tokyo is basically still a city of interconnected villages.

 

The first Shogun of Japan, Tokugawa Ieyasu, turned Edo into the center of his military based government in 1603. His successors of the Tokugawa Shogunate developed Edo into the biggest city in the world in 1721. After their power structure collapsed in 1868,  Edo became Tokyo - "Eastern Capital" and it turned into one of the biggest modern cities in the world in our time. More.....

 

Customs

The code of etiquette in Japan governs the expectations of social behavior in the country and is considered very important. Many books instruct readers on its minutiae.

Some customs may be very regional practices, and thus may not exist in all regions of Japan. The following are generally accepted modern customs in Japan. Some customs have changed over the course of history.

Payments, Greetings, Food, Wining and Dining, Bathing, Entering a Japanese house, Gifts and Presents
