Still shogun time

Edo was the name of the town under the rules of the shogunate.

So, this small map shows “Tokyo” at the time of the shogunate, which lasted until Emperor Meiji restored his power in 1868.

The large open space in the centre of the town is the location of the castle of the shogun. After the revolution the Emperor built his palace on the same spot.
