It was created in a 1964 redistricting form areas that had previously formed part of the 1st district: It consisted of Eastern Tokyos Chūō, Bunkyō and Taitō special wards, central parts of the former city of Tokyo. In a reapportionment for the 1993 election the number of representatives for Tokyo 8th district was reduced from three to two.
