A Travel Guide to Tokyo

Monocle will navigate you through some of their favorite corners of this vast metropolis.

Posted by Gestalten—07/2015

If Tokyo’s reputation is that of an imposing, neon-lit, modern city, a visit will reveal a very different side: low-rise, leafy and welcoming. For The Monocle Travel Guide to Tokyo, the Monocle team has canvassed the metropolis for places that highlight this lesser-known side. They show a balance of the old and new, the monumental and artisanal. Many are their own favorite haunts: coffee shops, architectural gems, and neighborhoods where you can wander on foot or explore by bicycle and find something surprising around every corner.

Expect to fall in love with the sumptuous food, dazzling shopping, and the most courteous residents you’ll ever meet. Tokyo: The Monocle Travel Guide Series is now available at Gestalten Pavilion, Gestalten Space, and in our online shop.
