Tokyo is often referred to and thought of as a city, but is officially known and governed as a "metropolitan prefecture", which differs from and combines elements of both a city and a prefecture; a characteristic unique to Tokyo. The Tokyo metropolitan government administers the 23 Special Wards of Tokyo (Special wards of Tokyo) (each governed as an individual city), which cover the area that was formerly the City of Tokyo before it merged and became the subsequent metropolitan prefecture in 1943. The metropolitan government also administers 39 municipalities (Municipalities of Japan) in the western part of the prefecture and the two outlying island chains. The population of the special wards is over 9 million people, with the total population of the prefecture exceeding 13 million. The prefecture is part of the world's most populous metropolitan area (Largest Metropolitan Area) with upwards of 37.8 million people and the world's largest urban agglomeration economy (List of cities by GDP). The city hosts 51 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, the highest number of any city. The city is also home of various television networks like Fuji TV and the Tokyo Broadcasting System.

The city is considered an alpha+ world city (global city)—as listed by the GaWC (Globalization and World Cities Research Network)'s 2008 inventory In 2009 Tokyo was named the third Most Liveable City by the magazine ''Monocle (Monocle (lifestyle magazine))''. last Fawkes first Piers url http: www.psfk.com 2009 06 top-25-most-liveable-cities-2009-monocle-magazine-zurich-copenhagen-tokyo-munich-helsinki.html title Top 25 Most Liveable Cities 2009 – Monocle publisher PSFK.com date June 18, 2009 accessdate July 6, 2009 The Michelin Guide has awarded Tokyo by far the most Michelin stars of any city in the world.
