Overview

City Guide Tokyo offers comprehensive travel advice for what to do and where to go in one of Asia’s most fast-paced cities. Engaging and inspirational History and Culture chapters explain the city’s intriguing and proud past, and the factors influencing contemporary society. The fashion scene, architectural treasures and local cuisine are fully explored so that visitors can gain a sense of how Tokyo’s distinctive character and culture have been shaped. The Best of Tokyo section gives our recommendations for planning the perfect trip – from visiting tranquil temples to joining the crowds in Shibuya’s glitzy shopping malls. The Places chapters cover all areas of the city in detail, including Harajuku and Roppongi. There are also plenty of ideas for hopping on Japan’s super-efficient rail network to make excursions to Mount Fuji, Yokohama, and the spectacular former capital, Kamakura. Full-color photography throughout gives a true flavor of life in the city today. Detailed maps help visitors get around, with all major sites cross-referenced with the text, and the Travel Tips offer selective advice on where to stay, what to eat and practical information on cultural, outdoor and sporting activities.
