The hilly special ward of Bunkyo has become known as a place of learning and culture. From the Meiji period onwards, politicians and scholars came to Bunkyo to study and work at the university buildings, or in any one of the number of cultural institutions based here. As well as being a place of study, the city within metropolitan Tokyo has been a seat of power, often showing the prettier side of elite life. Visitors can explore a number of parks and gardens designed for political leaders from as far back of the time of the Tokugawa shogunate during a trip to Bunkyo. Bunkyo is in Tokyo.
