Tokyo by The Monocle

Monocle reports from around the the globe in print, on radio and online. As their editors and correspondents dart from city to city they get to know the best places to rest their heads, stretch their limbs and kick back with a contact in a hard-to-find cocktail bar. That information is in Monocle's Travel Guide Series; a line-up of titles that speaks to you in an informed but informal way about everything from architecture to art, late-night bars to early-morning markets…

It would take a lifetime to get to know every facet of Tokyo, so large that it spreads as far as the eye can see. But look closely and you will find a city of exceptional charm and breathtaking efficiency. The Japanese capital is a fascinating tangle of opposites: the latest technology and traditional arts; crowded stations and quiet backstreets; concrete highways and green parks.
