Tokyo and Japan Area Guides

Wards in Tokyo

The city of Tokyo is in the Kanto area of Japan. Tokyo is made up of 23 special wards called ‘ku’ in Japanese. These special wards in Tokyo are self-governing municipalities. Even though each has it’s own local government and manages many public services, the Tokyo Metropolitan Governmen still control certain services such as the water supply system, sewage, and fire services.

In this section we will introduce you the characteristics of each ward and its attractions. From that, we hope you can find the best ward to stay in Tokyo!

Once you have chosen a ward, it’s time to find your dream home there. Contact us to take that step!
