It is impossible to sum up Tokyo in a line, a paragraph, a page or even a book. The city has a force and power all of its own. It creates its own gravity as a centre of everything: politics, industry, finance, shopping, the arts, architecture, scientific study, nightlife and food.
“What gets me about Tokyo is the sheer volume of restaurants. As a food obsessive this is the draw that pulls me back again and again.”
Alastair Donnelly, Director
