The Edo Period came to an end after many long years, and the new Meiji Period began; at this time, the Shogunate and clan domain system was dissolved, and a new political framework was created. Central in the new political framework was Tokyo, the new name given to Edo. This was due to the efforts of Saigo Takamori and Katsu Kaishu etc., who ensured that Edo did not suffer any major war destruction, despite the fact that the new government army and the old shogunate army were fighting all over Japan.
