Bunkyō is one of the 23 special wards of Tokyo, Japan. Situated in the middle of the ward area, Bunkyō is a residential and educational center. Beginning in the Meiji period, literati like Natsume Sōseki, as well as scholars and politicians have lived there. The publishing, printing, and leading-edge medical-care industries are important in the economy of Bunkyō. Most recently, the information and IT industries have flourished. Bunkyō is home to large hospitals, the Tokyo Dome, judo's Kodokan, and the University of Tokyo.

Bunkyō has a sister-city relationship with Kaiserslautern in the Rhineland-Palatinate of Germany.
