Tokyo Megacity PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tokyo Megacity free pdf Modern Tokyo is a city of strata, in which the patchwork of villages that make its surface so varied are matched by the slices of the past that remain.

A visual and verbal exploration of Tokyo, now the largest city in the world, this gorgeous book features approximately 250 photos by well-known photographer Ben Simmons, accompanied by 31 essays by author Donald Richie. A new look at an astonishing city, "Tokyo Megacity" begins with an exploration of the ancient roots of old Edo and follows the evolution of the city to modern day.
