    Amazing images of Tokyo before it was a city

    Before Tokyo matured into the gleaming, dense city it is today, it was a small fishing village called Edo.

    Now home to over 13 million people, the Japanese capital has changed dramatically since its beginnings in the 12th century.

    Tokyo was originally known as Edo, which means “estuary.” In the late 12th century, Edo was fortified by the Edo clan, which built a castle and military capital (pictured below). Some of the estate’s moats and walls still survive to this day.
