A full Tokyo travel experience for those wanting to discover its vibrant, creative underbelly
It's clear to see why Tokyo is a source of fascination for young travelers. 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 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.
Steve Wide and Michelle Mackintosh have been obsessed with Tokyo since their first visit in the late 1990s. Since then they have been saving up all their pennies and travelling there twice a year. Steve works as a passionate writer and DJ, and Michelle is a book and stationery designer, and illustrator. Together they form the creative team behind all of the text, photography, illustrations and design for this modern travel guide which exudes their passion for this city.
