Back when people still bought guidebooks and TripAdvisor hadn’t destroyed the world, I wrote or commissioned the texts for 3 Time Out Tokyo books. Features included a manga guide to Tokyo’s tribes, a rather explicit description of what goes on in the 24-hour gay theme parks, and a history chapter that was way too good for a guide book. It’s all thoroughly out of date now, but it was good at the time.

Buy the book, if you like
