With a trim size of 6x6 inches, "The Little Book of Tokyo" is little, or better pocketable, indeed, yet it covers a broad range of aspects relating to Japan's modern capital. It is divided into four chapters:
- The Spirit of Tokyo, with sections on shrines, temples, matsuri (traditional festivals), kabuki, sumo, eateries, and shopping
- Traditional Tokyo, covering the famous and some not so famous areas in and around Tokyo, such as the Imperial Palace, Asakusa, Shibamata, Kamakura, Kawagoe, and Mount Takao
- Tokyo Today, expanding on the "modern" Tokyo, from the fashionable districts of Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku,and Ginza, to the otaku paradise of Harajuku and the museums of Ueno
- Tokyo Sights, giving attention to classics like the Meiji Shrine, the Tsukiji Fish Market, Roppongi Hills, Kiyosumi Garden, Yamanote Line and many other sights worth a visit.
Each chapter comprises a short introduction, commentaries on various aspects of Japanese culture as well as a vast scope of breath-taking photos. Ideal as a gift for Japan aficionados or for tourists visiting the city for the first time, "The Little Book of Tokyo" gives a comprehensive overview over the people, the culture, and the history of Japan's capital.
