Editorial Reviews

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"
