In this vibrant and witty text, Donald Richie takes the reader on a tour of the different districts of Japan's capital city, providing insights into a culture and people normally hidden from outsiders. With the eclectic eye and ear of a filmmaker, Richie describes the flavour and idiosyncracies of this chaotic, teeming city. Tokyo is illustrated with over 30 intriguing photographs by Seattle-based photographer Joel Sackett.
