Summary

Take a photographic journey through the modern marvels and historical treasures of Tokyo in this informative, portable Japan travel guide.

The Little Book of Tokyo is the perfect introduction to this enchanting, ultra-modern megacity and provides an immersive take on Tokyo combining Japanese history, photography and cultural commentary. It weaves a tapestry of the city's many unique idiosyncrasies, offering strategies for exploring the High City to the Low City, Tokyo Bay to the top of Tokyo Skytree, and the most critical places and happenings in between, including architecture, festivals, and landmarks. It also beautifully captures the many inhabitants of Tokyo, painting a rich and multi-faceted picture of this capital city.

A series of 50 informative essays are organized into four chapters:
  • Tokyo's Edo Legacy
  • Tokyo Towns
  • City Perspectives
  • Spirit of Tokyo
In The Little Book of Tokyo, veteran photojournalist Ben Simmons continues a quest he began over two decades ago to seek out and share his creative viewpoint and insider's perspective. Small enough to carry while traveling in Japan, this book is an ideal travel companion for a Tokyo experience, whether you're planning your trip, on your way, or merely dream of going.
