1 Tokyo, Japan
A city of vast proportions, Tokyo is also one of the most dynamic and exhilarating cities in the world. At one time known as Edo, or ‘Gate of the River’ for its location at the mouth of the Sumidagawa River, it first gained importance in 1603, when Tokugawa Ieyasu established his military government, or ‘shogunate’ here. From a little-known backwater town, Edo grew into a city from which the Tokugawa clan governed all of Japan. By the late-18th century, it had become the most populous city in the world. When the Tokugawa clan fell from power and the authority of the emperor was restored in 1868, he moved the capital from Kyoto to Edo. At this point, the city also was renamed Tokyo, which means ‘Eastern Capital’.

3 Osaka, Japan
In a city whose commercial roots date back as far as the fourth century, it is no wonder that the standard greeting between Osakans is ‘Mokari makka’ or ‘Are you making any money?’.

Osaka came into its own during the 16th century, when Toyotomi Hideyoshi unified Japan and built his castle here. Under the Tokugawa shogunate, the city continued to thrive in commerce and culture, and traditional Japanese forms such as kabuki theatre and bunraku puppetry flourished.

5 Hiroshima, Japan
Hiroshima was founded in 1593 when a castle was built at the mouth of the Ota River. Following the Meiji Restoration in 1868, the harbor was enlarged and the Kobe to Shimonoseki railway is routed through Hiroshima. The town gained more prominence during the first Sino-Japanese War in 1894-5 as the Imperial Headquarters. The continual growth of Hiroshima saw it as the nations seventh largest city by 1941 when Japan enters WWII. Hiroshima escapes allied bombing until August 6th, 1945, when Hiroshima suffered humankind's first nuclear-weapons tragedy. The devastation was almost complete, but reconstruction begins in 1949. By 1974, Hiroshima has doubled its pre-war population and has become the International City of Peace.

6 Busan, South Korea
Busan is South Korea’s second largest city, and its principal port. It is also the only major South Korean city to have escaped capture by the communists during the Korean War, when its population was increased by an unbelievable four million refugees. Although the city is nestled between mountain ridges and peaks, its port has given it an outward orientation, and a certain cosmopolitan ambience has resulted from the constant exposure to sailors from all over the world. Lovely beaches, scenic cliffs, mountain panoramas, and hot springs are all found within the city. Under the new Romanisation system promulgated in 2000, Pusan, as the city was formerly called, is now spelled Busan.

8 Incheon (Seoul)
Incheon is both a bustling city and a major seaport on the west coast of South Korea, about 60 to 75 minutes from Seoul. Although referred to by many as a ‘suburb of Seoul’, Incheon is an independent city of over 2.5 million, within the Free Economic Zone Authority.
Under the rule of many kingdoms and dynasties, Incheon has been known by several different names since it was first recorded in 475 AD as Michuhol. When the port was opened in 1883, it was called Jemulpo and the surrounding area, ‘Inchon-gun’. By the Second World War when the city became the sight of a Japanese prisoner of war camp, it was generally referred to as Inchon.

10 Beijing (Tianjin), China
Tianjin lies in the northeast of the North China Plain. It is bordered by the Bohai Sea and separated by the Haihe River, which flows through the urban area of the city. Like Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing, Tianjin belongs to no province but is a special municipality administered by the central government. Due to its history as a foreign concession, heavy industrial output, large port and European-style architecture, the city is often referred to as the “Shanghai of the North.” However, for most of its existence, Tianjin's fortunes have always been linked to those of Beijing, especially where the port is concerned. The distance between Tianjin and Beijing is 105 miles, or a drive of approximately 2.5 hours, depending on traffic conditions.

Beijing has been the capital of China for the last 800 years. Before then, it was one of the most important cities in northern China for some 3,000 years. Kublai Khan developed Beijing as his winter capital, calling it Dadu, or Great Capital. By the time Marco Polo reached Beijing at the end of the 13th century, he found a great metropolis. Most of the magnificent buildings we see today, such as the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace, were constructed during the Ming Dynasty.

13 Shanghai, China
Strategically located where the Yangtze River, Grand Canal and Pacific Ocean meet, Shanghai has served as a major commercial port since the Song Dynasty (10th century). From here, the region's substantial cotton crop was shipped to Beijing and more remote regions in China and Japan. By the Qing Dynasty, vast mercantile guilds, organized by trade, had established economic and a considerable
amount of political control of the city. In the 1840s Shanghai was described by a representative of the British East India Company as “the principal emporium of Eastern Asia.” Not surprisingly, after the Opium Wars the British moved in under the Treaty of Nanking, followed by the French, and set up the first foreign concessions in the city.

China ceded Hong Kong to Britain in 1842 after its defeat in the first Opium War. In 1860, following the second Opium War, the peninsula of Kowloon on the mainland was added to the colony. In 1984, China and Britain signed a joint declaration for the return of Hong Kong to China in 1997.
