The Great Cities/Tokyo

by FanOfTimeLifeBooks on Jan 4, 2008

"The Great Cities/Tokyo" is one of 25 volumes from The Great Cities series published by Time-Life books in the 1970s. Though a bit out of date, this book is still a good introduction to the history and people of Tokyo. Having visited Tokyo myself several years ago, I was eager to read this book; I was not disappointed. Fosco Maraini's description of Tokyo brought back many memories. The author presents a unique perspective as he also lived in Rome; thus, the reader learns about two cities. The picture essays are wonderful and allow you to travel through Tokyo. If you are wanting to "visit" Tokyo without spending money on a plane ticket, then this fun and easy-to-read book is for you.
