Tokio

  1. Obsolete spelling of Tokyo.
    • 1882, William Elliot Griffis, “Preface”, in Corea: The Hermit Nation[1], New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, →OCLC, page vii[2]:
      I also thank Mr. Charles Lanman, Secretary of the Legation of Japan in Washington, for four ferrotypes taken in Seoul in 1878 by members of the Japanese embassy ; Mr. D. R. Clark, of the United States Transit of Venus Survey, for four photographs of the Corean villages in Russian Manchuria ; Mr. R. Idéura, of Tōkiō, for a set of photographs of Kang-wa and vicinity, taken in 1876, and Mr. Ozawa Nankoku, for sketches of Corean articles in Japanese museums.
    • 1891, Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray:
      [] and making him think of those pallid jade-faced painters of Tokio who, through the medium of an art that is necessarily immobile, seek to convey the sense of swiftness of motion.
