Steve Wide and Michelle Mackintosh have been obsessed with Japan since their first visit in the late 1990s. Since then they have been saving up all their pennies to travel to Japan twice a year. Steve is a passionate writer and DJ, with a local radio show. Michelle is a book and stationery designer and illustrator. Together they have created all of the text, photography, illustrations and design for this new-age travel guide. This is the fourth Japan guidebook they've authored, following Tokyo Precincts,Kyoto Pocket Precincts and Onsen of Japan. Zusammenfassung
Tokyo is a city like no other, a looming contemporary metropolis where every turn is a new adventure. There are bright lights and neon, bars under railway bridges, Michelin ramen and sushi, tech, toys and vintage shopping. In a compact, light paperback format perfect for slipping into your back pocket, Tokyo Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city’s most interesting cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences.
Divided into separate precincts, each section lists the best shops, restaurants, bars and sights to see in the area, from your morning coffee to your evening on the town. The guide covers Shibuya, Yoyogi, Harajuku, Aoyama, Roppongi, Ginza, Tokyo Station, Akihabara, Ueno, Asakusa & Yanaka, Shinjuku, Koenji, Kichijoji, Shimokitazawa, Ebisu, Daikanyama & Nakameguro, and Meguro.
Also included is a selection of 'field trips' to encourage you to explore outside the city, including Nikko, Hakone, Mount Takao, and the cute 'Eno-den' train from Kamakura to Enoshima and Fujisawa.
