--- Quote from: jarodea on February 16, 2024, 08:49:05 AM ---Japan's bifurcated electrical system is due to Osaka and Tokyo choosing different suppliers in the late 19th Century, not due to the post-WW2 Occupation Authority.  Osaka bought from Europe causing Western Japan to build off of its 50 HZ, while Tokyo bought from America giving Eastern Japan 60 Hz.  It remains today due to the difficulty of changing electrical systems.

--- End quote ---

Tokyo is 50Hz, Osaka is 60Hz. I live in the greater Tokyo area, and was late for work when I first moved here because my American alarm clock was running wrong.
