This page is about the general appearance of Tokyo in the series, for the city's appearance in Jet Set Radio Future, see Tokyo (JSRF).

Tokyo (東京 Tōkyō?) is the main city where the Jet Set Radio series takes place in. It holds home to three districts: Shibuya, Kogane, and Benten.


Jet Set Radio[]

In Jet Set Radio, Tokyo, referred to as Tokyo-to, is where a majority of the game takes place in. According to the intro cutscene, the city is located somewhere in Asia and cannot be found anywhere on the map. During the story a turf war between four graffiti gangs take place throughout the city. Those gangs are: the GG's, the Love Shockers, Poison Jam and the Noise Tanks.

During the turf war, the financial conglomerate known as the Rokkaku Group, led by Rokkaku Goji, plans to take over the city and eventually the world by collaborating with the city's government. The police, led by Captain Onishima, are also on the hunt in the city chasing down the graffiti gangs. The Golden Rhinos eventually take over Tokyo-to only to be stopped by the GG's, who also take down Goji and save the city from being overruled by his company.

Jet Set Radio Future[]

In Jet Set Radio Future, Tokyo is where the entire events of the game take place in. Similar to its predecessor, Tokyo is in a current turf war with multiple gangs participating in it; including: the GG's, Poison Jam, Rapid 99, the Immortals, the Doom Riders, the Love Shockers and the Noise Tanks.

However this time, the Rokkaku Group has taken over the city by buying out the the police force, which is led by Hayashi, until chapter 6, where they are instantly replaced with the Golden Rhinos, who make the streets of Tokyo dangerous. Eventually the Golden Rhinos and Rokkaku Gouji are taken down by the GG's, which brings the city back to normalcy.
