Tokyo 夜の東京 is often referred to as a city, but is officially known and governed as a metropolitan prefecture, which differs from and combines elements of a city and a prefecture, a characteristic unique to Tokyo.

The Tokyo metropolitan government administers the 23 Special Wards of Tokyo (each governed as an individual city), which cover the area that was the City of Tokyo before it merged and became the metropolitan prefecture in 1943.

Tokyo (東京 Tōkyō), officially Tokyo Metropolis (東京都), is one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, and is both the capital and most populous city of Japan.
