After reawakening, Brian hit the streets and decided that ruling the universe through the hidden mysticism of arcane Star Wars references, binary pulsar radio emission patterns, vintage Japanese vinyls, & Coca-Cola. Brian is publisher & founder of Super 7 magazine, founder of Hybrid Designs, an award-winning designer, and a highly-obsessed toy collector.

Joshua Bernard, like many children born in the early 1970s, was raised by Speed racer, Force Five, and George Lucas. in 2001, his obsession for Japanese Toys and culture caused him to create CollectionDX.com, a Popular website for toy collecting.

Joshua currently lives in Massachusetts with his wife, four children, two cats, two guinea pigs, and several dozen fish.

I used the first edition while on vacation in Japan last October. I had the second edition posted to my serviced apartment during the last week of my stay (I was in Tokyo for a month).

The second book is virtually identical to the first, in-fact I ended up correcting some of the addresses in the second edition. Buy this book if you don't already have the first, it's a real good way to see parts of Tokyo you may miss otherwise. Even if the stores in the book are no longer there by the time you get there.

You'll probably do most of your toy shopping in Nakano or Akihabara anyway. Stick to Nakano if you don't have time, the prices are good & there's plenty of variety, (stock changes daily) for most of us... ;)

This book is a fun read. Even if you're not traveling to Japan, this book is like a bit of a vacation that takes you on the adventure. You can tell the hard work and love that went into Tokyo Underground 2.

I read on the publisher's website about the second edition, and it sounded like they added a whole lot of new content. After getting this book, it is totally not true, pretty much the same book as the first edition.
