Overview

The only guide you'll need for walking around Tokyo! Everything you need is in this one convenient package!

Tokyo: 29 Walks in the World's Most Exciting City is the only Tokyo travel guide that is exclusively a walking guide, with lively text full of facts and stories that emphasize the history, culture, architecture and spirit of the city and its neighborhoods. On foot and by train or subway, it takes you through the most fascinating parts of the modern megalopolis, while making the shogun's city—the Edo of samurai and geishas, merchants and artisans—and the outlines of old Tokyo come alive. From famous historical sites like the Imperial Palace to unique attractions like the Tsukiji Fish Market, this travel book offers something for every visitor and even long-term residents.

Fully up-to-date, Tokyo: 29 Walks in the World's Most Exciting City contains:

  • 19 walks in Tokyo
  • 10 day trips that include Yokohama, Kamakura, Mt. Fuji, and Kawagoe
  • More than 100 full-color photos
  • 50 full-color maps

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Well-illustrated with photos, prints and comprehensive maps, [this is a] cultural guide, dispensing with the usual exhaustive listings of hotels, shops, restaurants and cafes, unless a site is of architectural or historical interest. Beginning with a brief but lucid history of the city, the guide quickly launches into the walks themselves, beginning, aptly enough, with the splendidly restored Tokyo Station." —Stephen Mansfield, The Japan Times

"We recommend the book not only to first-time visitors of Tokyo, but also to foreign residents who would get a fast overview over the main attractions in and around the capital. An indispensable and invaluable guide!" —Japan Reference blog
