reading > tokyo on foot

I’m planning a trip to Japan this year and have found so many cool travel guides.

This one is not quite a travel guide since the author had actually moved to Tokyo when his partner got a job there. I think this one won me over with the hand drawn maps. I could stare at them for aaaaaaaages trying to take in each detail.

There are also people posts.

And landscapes. And food. And room cutaways (another favorite of mine).

So fun to read and gives you another view of the place that you won’t get from glossy travel books.
