Modern Tokyo is a city of strata, in which the patchwork of villages that make its surface so varied are matched by the slices of the past that remain. The city combines the old and the new, and is both traditional and trendy. This diversity, this variety, this livability, this adventure is captured in both the text and the photographs of Tokyo Megacity.
A visual and verbal exploration of Tokyo, now the largest city in the world, this gorgeous book features approximately 250 photos by well-known photographer Ben Simmons, accompanied by 31 essays by author Donald Richie. A new look at an astonishing city, Tokyo Megacity begins with an exploration of the ancient roots of old Edo and follows the evolution of the city to modern day.
