Tokyo


Tokyo, Japan
The Tokyo Metropolis is one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, and is the only prefecture which operates as a city. Because Tokyo is the seat of the Japanese government, home of the Japanese Imperial Famly, and site of the Imperial Palace, it is the de facto capital of Japan, although there is no law specifically establishing it as such.

The Greater Tokyo Area has a population of over 35 million, making it the world's most populous metropolitan area, a status it has held for about 40 years. Even though Japan's population is declining, the Greater Tokyo Area's population continues to increase.

Product Description:
The definitive travel guides that make you feel like a local wherever you go. Monoclemagazine covers the world with its network of bureaus (New York, Toronto, Zurich, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Tokyo, Singapore), its more than 30 dedicated correspondents based from Beirut to Bogota, Sao Paulo to Stolkholm, and its team of on-the-road reporters based out of its headquarters in London. Monocle-the magazine that covers urbanism and the city design like no other-knows about the hidden gems in all the great cities. It also knows where to take an ambassador for breakfast, an on-the-go businessman for a late night cocktail, or where to get an astute concierge at ungodly hours. Its deep understanding of cities and all they have to offer has been compiled in the new Monocle Travel Guides. Launching this spring with editions for London and Tokyo, followed by New York and Hong Kong, these beautiful books reveal the Monocle team's favorite places, from the ideal route for an early morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Aimed at people who do not want to be tourists but rather feel like locals when they travel, these are books for those who want to mix the classic with the contemporary, want to get beyond the cliches, and know they can get a feel for a city even if they only have a few days. And they are full of surprises and quirks: the books will guide you to a grand hotel but also to a cozy two-star, and will leave you drinking in a local corner bar or being served by a great waiter who knows his craft-while being wary of pushing you into the newest, hippest, soulless bar. Created by the Monocle design team, these authoritative guides will be trim enough to drop into your pocket and wise enough to stay by your side throughout your travels.

Tokyo is a collection of districts, each with its own personality and its own style tribes. Unlike other guidebooks, Tokyo Precincts shows you the city from the perspective of the local creatives who live and work there, allowing you an instant entry into the most happening spots in town.
