* 1.1 Various definitions of Tokyo, Greater Tokyo
Tokyo
">_ Growth of densely inhabited districts (DIDs, defined as >4,000 people/km2 or >10,355 people/mi2_) of suburb Saitama city (outlined) of northern Greater Tokyo, 1960s to 2010. Notice how the densely populated zones grow along railway lines and stations, the purple circles and lines. Green southern border is Tokyo.

There are various definitions of the Greater Tokyo
Tokyo
Area, each of which tries to incorporate different aspects. Some definitions are clearly defined by law or government regulation, some are based coarsely on administrative areas, while others are for research purposes such as commuting patterns or distance from Central Tokyo. Each definition has a different population figure, granularity, methodology, and spatial association.

TOKYO METROPOLITAN EMPLOYMENT AREA (東京大都市雇用圏, TōKYō DAI-TOSHI KOYō-KEN_) All municipalities that have at least 10% of their population commuting to the 23 special wards. Figures for this definition are complex to update without a major re-study.

ONE METROPOLIS, THREE PREFECTURES (一都三県, ITTO SANKEN_) Coarse administrative definition. Misses many of the more-distant suburbs that lie outside the prefectural borders, especially in Ibaraki and Gunma
Gunma
. Incorporates sparsely settled rural districts like Nishitama . 33,534 (2000CF), 35,623 (2010CF), 36,092 (2015-12CR) 13,555.65 2,627.9 (2010), 2,662 (2015-12) _
