"Have you ever been to Tokyo?"
"Between nursing school and being homeless? Haven't really had the chance."
"Maybe after this we could, um, go on a trip. It's a great city."
Jeri Hogarth and Inez Green[src]

Tokyo, officially Tokyo Metropolis, is one of 47 prefectures of Japan, and the only "metropolitan prefecture", that combines elements of both a city and a prefecture. As the capital of Japan, Tokyo has the largest metropolitan economy in the world, hosting many of the most important companies in the world, such as Stark-Fujikawa[3]


Celebration Place

Tony Stark was able to clean several square miles of a Land mine-infested desert in Afghanistan, thwarting the Ten Rings in their goal to kill the canine brigades tasked by the Afghani armed forces to detect the explosives.

Stark used a Magna-Drone that was able to attract the landmines with a 100% retrieval and non-detonation rate, making Stark want to travel to Tokyo to celebrate the success of his task.[4]

Chase of Black Sky



Stick attacked a man named Aito inside his office in Tokyo as he was looking for the Black Sky. Aito tried to reach his office and grabbed a gun to confront Stick, waiting for him as the elevator's doors opened.

Aito shot until running out of bullets, and Stick seized the opportunity to place his katana in Aito's neck as he tried to change the magazine.

Stick asked him about Black Sky's location, and he lied saying he did not know where it was. Aito tried to attack Stick again, but he easily cut Aito's hand making both the hand and the handgun fall to the floor. Stick repeated the question, reminding Aito that he still had three limbs and other appendages left.

Aito revealed that the Black Sky was put on a ship headed to New York City, swearing it was the truth upon his own family. Stick coldly told him that his family was better without him, and beheaded Aito with a single blow of his katana, quickly leaving the building.[6]
