Tokyo was originally known as Edo, which means "estuary". Its name was changed to Tokyo (Tokyo tō "east", and kyō "capital") when it became the imperial capital with the arrival of Emperor Meiji in 1868, in line with the East Asian tradition of including the word capital in the name of the capital city (like Kyoto, Beijing and Nanjing)
The mainland portion of Tokyo lies northwest of Tokyo Bay and measures about 90 km east to west and 25 km north to south.
