[...] However, the Pacific War which broke out in 1941 had a great impact on Tokyo. The dual administrative system of Tokyo-fu (prefecture) and Tokyo-shi (city) that had existed was abolished to pursue the war, and the prefecture and city were merged to form the Metropolis of Tokyo in 1943.

Japan is divided into a number of prefectures (of which Hokkaido is not referred to as a "ken" = prefecture), Osaka fu and Tokyo to. Osaka and Tokyo actually include entire cities (shi), and Tokyo also has ku, divisions of cities that are translated as wards. So Tokyo is not strictly a prefecture. "To" is more or less a "metropolis".
(I was born and raised in Japan, by the way.)
