There are a lot of guidebooks but not many photo books.
This one does not disappoint. It's large and has tremendous photos. It makes me want to go back!
A feast for the eye, a treat for your Japanese travelling ambitions, "Tokyo, megacity" stands out amongst many other pubblications on the subject (also noteworthy is Livio Sacchi's "Tokyo").
I visit Tokyo yearly and this book stimulates memories and also gives me new perspectives of the largest city in the world.
