If you’re too cheap to book a flight to Tokyo, then the next best thing is reading about it instead!
Here’s a selection of books we’re curated for your low cost entertainment needs:
Non-fiction – Real Tokyo Stories
Tokyo Vice – Jake Adelstein
Jake Adelstein is a living legend, having survived both a journalist career of covering organised crime and being the first American citizen to work as a Japanese language reporter for a Japanese newspaper.
You probably have your own preference over lonely planet or the rough guide? We won’t try and persuade you either way and just quietly mention that we are also publishing our own Tokyo guide – “A Cheapo’s Guide To Tokyo”
