Tokio, Texas

Tokio is an unincorporated community in Terry County, Texas, United States. According to the Handbook of Texas, the community had an estimated population of 24 in 2000.[1]

The town was named after the capital city of Japan with the same name.

The town of Tokio was founded in 1908, and relocated a mile south to the current location in 1928 when US highway 380 was redirected. Although reaching a population of at least 125 residents in the 1940s, Tokio lies mostly in ruins today.[2] A historical marker stands in front of the old Tokio School.[3]

Another Texas community named Tokio (also called Wiggins) is located in McLennan County, near West, Texas.[4]
