The title Tokyo Is My Garden is akin to the English idiom Like the back of my hand. When David Martin is sent as a sales representative to Japan for Heurault cognacs of France, he spends his time discovering Japanese culture and finding his way through the night-life of Tokyo. Then his boss announces an imminent visit to check up on his (lack of) progress. He must turn the situation around quickly or risk losing his job, his visa and the woman he loves. So starts an amusing and exciting chase as David attempts to chaperon his boss and seduce his lover through a bustling life that is Tokyo. By the creators of the cult titles Yukiko's Spinach, Cities of the Fantastic (NBM) and The Walking Man.
