Tokyo Precincts: A Curated Guide to the City's Best Shops, Eateries, Bars and Other Hangouts


It’s clear to see why Tokyo is a source of fascination for travellers. Streets of towering neon that never sleep hide warren-like alleys filled with lanterns, vending machines and tiny bars where businessmen drink the latest seasonal beers. Tokyo is a collection of precincts, each with its own personality. Go shopping mad in Shinjuku, tap into Tokyo’s youth culture in Harajuku and Shibuya, go vintage shopping in Koenji, check out the latest gadgets in Akihabara or step back in time in old-world Asakusa. The book is divided into 19 precincts, with a chapter covering each, featuring the very best of Tokyo’s shopping, eating and drinking experiences. Interviews with creative Tokyoites also read more
