Product description

Review

-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

From the Back Cover

"Tokyo: 29 Walks in the World's Most Exciting City" offers a unique and timeless introduction to one of the world's great cities and perhaps its most exciting one. Presenting 29 easy-to-follow walking tours through and near to Tokyo, it is the only guide to the city that is exclusively a walking guide, and its lively text is 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 geisha, merchants and artisans--and the outlines of old Tokyo come alive. Here you will learn about the real last samurai and follow the shifting location of the celebrated pleasure quarters or "floating world" of geisha fame; you'll visit Tokyo's Champ-Elysees and see its newest skyscrapers and futuristic enclaves in Roppongi Hills and Midtown. Along the way, the authors signal points of interest, including museums, temples, shrines, vistas, gardens for quiet meditation, and meccas for lovers of Japanese popular culture and shoppers. From famous historical sites like the Imperial Palace and the Senso-ji temple to unique attractions like the Tsukiji Fish Market or the Japanese Sword Museum (or the Kite or Tobacco and Salt Museums), they offer something for every visitor, while placing it in the context of events that shaped the city and the nation at large. This is a guide that will fascinate both first-time visitors and long-term residents.
Fully up-to-date, this book contains nineteen walks in Tokyo and ten day trips that include Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone, Mt. Fuji, and Kawagoe, also known as "Little Edo." It features more than 100 color photos as well as approximately 50 brand-new full-color maps and diagrams of individual sites. It also comes with a full-color pullout map of the Tokyo walking tours.
