Tokyo Stroll Supplement

boats

This series of pages is a supplement to my book Tokyo Stroll.

About the book.

Tokyo Stroll is a guide to twenty two neighborhoods in Tokyo. I describe specific locations in each neighborhood that may be of interest and let you wander as you want. It comes with maps which are detailed to the point that you will know how many buildings from a corner a location is, I hate having to try to figure out where I am from vague directions.
The book is for those who simply wish to wander about and look at what is there.

This page is the contents to supplementary material I hope improves the experience ot visiting Tokyo.
Updates to this supplement will be announced on my blog.

Guides intended to assist in your exploration of Tokyo.
