After which it takes it a step further and addresses some of the smaller yet essential districts such as Sugamo and Nippori.

“One fact that sets our guide apart from others is that all of the information current. It is not uncommon to find dated travel info on the web and in publications, not to mention the noticeable lack of good and extensive photography,” says Naru Sasaki, Chief Writer. “Tokyo is a fascinating city to behold so naturally there should be an abundance of photography so travelers can catch a glimpse of the city's magic. We have over 1,500 photos covering all aspects of the city. From the slums to the skyscrapers, gardens to shrines”, he said.

With our train guides we want to make your travelling as problem free as possible, so you can focus your attention on the good stuff”, continues Chief Writer Sasaki. “Aside from our guides we hope travelers will also check out our Learning Japanese Guide where we take an earnest approach to teaching Japanese in a systematic manner.
