The Monocle Travel Guide to Tokyo | Video

Monocle travels to the Japanese capital for a comprehensive survey of the best the city has to offer.

By //Travel

It is no secret that Tokyo has no shortage of charms, from its abundant retail options, unending array of the most sumptuous restaurants, evocative sights, and unparalleled infrastructure. All of this, and more, has been covered in Monocle‘s latest installment of its travel guide series. Bypassing the Japanese capital’s reputation for being a futuristic, neon-lit metropolis, Monocle instead delves into the warm, humanistic nature of the city, with its low-rise neighborhoods, mom-and-pop shops, tree-lined avenues and courteous citizens. In addition to sections on food, history, retail and design, The Monocle Travel Guide to Tokyo also includes informative essays on its eclectic blend of architecture, the city’s best bartenders, and vinyl shops not to be missed. Watch the video above for a visual overview, and buy the publication when it becomes available online at Gestalten.
