Tokyo on Foot: Travels in the City’s Most Colorful Neighborhoods by Florent Chavouet


Getting lost in this colourful guide to one man’s stay in Tokyo is akin to spending time observing this busy city and its dwellers. The artwork is rich in detail, as is the witty commentary. Florent Chavouet is an insightful fly on the wall, and his outsider status makes the reader form a quick kinship while being drawn in the very varied neighbourhoods of this fascinating city. A great tantalizer for those thinking of travels to Tokyo, a fun guide to those already there and a valuable souvenir for those who’ve been.
