Course Title: Historic Cities - Tokyo

Journey through time with Sutton College! Enjoy a stimulating talk on the shaping of Tokyo, delivered by one of our History specialists in a relaxed classroom environment. This talk is one of a series of Historic Cities talks we offer at Sutton College on a weekly/fortnightly basis.

Purpose of Course

The Japanese capital is often portrayed in the West as a confusing city of opposites – with ancient tranquil temples and gardens on one hand, and a modern neon-lighted buzz that never stops. Tokyo’s neighbourhoods and inhabitants reflect its complex history, which only started in earnest when Edo became the capital 400 years ago.
