Herb Lester Associates research, write, print and distribute maps and guides to the world's great cities.
We seek out the well-used and much-loved, and enjoy the extraordinary as well as the everyday. Old bookshops and new coffee shops, park benches and dive bars, hat shops and haberdashers: this is the world according to Herb Lester.
Tokyo is a place that can befuddle and confuse even the most urbane traveller. Luis Mendo has spent several years visiting the city, and in this collaboration with Herb Lester Associates, he shares his hard-won knowledge.
This guide is a starting point, something to help you find your feet as you begin to navigate Tokyo’s streets. There are tips on etiquette, advice on getting around, useful phrases and a series of walks to help the visitor get acclimatised.
