When football fans visit Tokyo in the summer of 2002 to watch the World Cup, they will find few vestiges of the city's rich history in its ultra-modern landscapes. IOA: Old Tokyo bridges the gap between the city's cultural heritage and its present, describing in close detail how it evolvedfrom the shogun capital of a closed society to the international capital of an expanding country. Special attention is paid to the artistic and architectural trends in the Meiji (1868-1912) and Taisho (1912-1925) periods, about which not a great deal has been previously written.
