The Rough Guide to Tokyo


The Rough Guide to Tokyo Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Rough Guide to Tokyo is the ultimate insider’s guide to Japan's hyperactive capital. All major and many off-the-beaten-tracks sights are covered in detail – from the soaring Tokyo Sky Tree, the city’s newest, highest viewpoint, to the exciting new contemporary art complex 3331 Arts Chiyoda and the reborn architectural treasure Mitsubishi Ichigokan. It cuts through the hype to reveal the metropolis’s best places to sleep, eat, drink and shop, with a new chapter highlighting what a fantastic destination Tokyo is to take the kids. There’s all you need to know for great day-trips to, among other places, the onsens of Hakone, the tranquil temples of Kamakura, and Yokohama’s Chinatown. Full-colour sections introduce Tokyo's highlights, its delicious array of cuisines (and the best places to find them) and the world leading design role the city has in everything from architecture to fashion. Easy-to-read maps are provided throughout the guide, plus there’s handy colour subway map.
