The former Tokyo Prefecture (東京府, Tōkyō-fu) was merged with the former city of Tokyo (東京市, Tōkyō-shi) to form the current "metropolitan prefecture". The metropolitan prefecture, mostly located to the south-east of Honshū (本州), the largest island of Japan to the centre, includes:
- the former city of Tokyo to the East, which was split into today's 23 special wards, with quasi-municipal status (but some subdomains are managed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government):
- the Tama Area (Western Tokyo), covering:
- the central-eastern part of Tokyo, made of 26 cities:
- the Nishi-Tama District to the west (in 3 rural areas), made of two towns and one village;
- two groups of islands to the south (the Izu Islands near Honshu, and the outlying Ogasawara Islands); they are subdivided into 4 subprefectures (from north to south):
- Ōshima Subprefecture, made of four municipalities (a town and three villages): Ōshima, Toshima, Niijima (also managing the island of Shikinejima), and Kōzushima;
- Miyake Subprefecture, made of two municipalities (two villages): Miyake and Mikurajima;
- Hachijō Subprefecture, made of two municipalities (a town and a village): Hachijō and Aogashima;
- Ogasawara Subprefecture, made of one municipality (a village): Ogasawara (also managing two other tiny outlying islands).
