Ueno Park is also the site of a science museum, a zoological garden, and two major art museums.Art and science museums are located close to the Imperial Palace, and museums of various types are located elsewhere in the city.I had thought that this could not happen with a natural fibre like wool, but would need an insulating material like a synthetic fibre.
Tokyo’s population exceeded one million in the late 19th century, and as Japan’s political, economic, and cultural centre it became one of the world’s most populous cities in the 20th century.
It is the focus of the vast metropolitan area often called Greater Tokyo, the largest urban and industrial agglomeration in Japan. The site of Tokyo has been inhabited since ancient times; the small fishing village of Edo existed there for centuries.
Edo’s development into a city did not occur until the Tokugawa period (1603–1867), when it became the capital of the Tokugawa shogunate.
Many domestic and international financial institutions and other businesses are headquartered in central Tokyo.
The city is an important wholesale centre, where goods from all parts of the country and the world are distributed.
