Tachikawa is a city of Tokyo, Japan located near the center of the prefecture. Reports released in 2003 state a population of approximately 175,000 people. The total estimated area of the city is 24km.
Tachikawa currently serves as one of the most prized business districts of Tokyo with many superior companies calling the city home. These companies include commercial services, retail department stores, and electronics departments. You can also find trend-setting fashion department stores in the area; although this comes as no surprise as most cities of Tokyo have their share of the fashion industry.
Tourists visiting Tachikawa are often most interested in the spectacular Japanese food sold in the city. Restaurants scattered throughout offer great prices on food representing much more than just a taste as it stands to present each guest with a real experience in Japanese culture and tradition. In fact, it is not unheard of for a wealthy person to travel to Tachikawa for a dinner at one of the most elite restaurants in the Tokyo area.
It wasn’t until 1940 that the city was recognized under modern governments as a district of Tokyo. In December of 1940, it was finally decided that the city would serve best as the name it was founded under and since it has remained the same.
Once the city was turned over to Japan it quickly became a great plan as the officials worked to develop the best and most efficient future for the land. Construction went underway as they reconstructed and enhanced the greenery, built large buildings for business, and began advertising the city as a wonderful place to call home.
