Lost Guides Tokyo & Beyond is a travel guide book that aims to help even the most seasoned of traveler to unlock the mystery and magic of Japan. Starting with the capital city Tokyo, the book shows the reader where the best neighborhoods are to feel like a local, with recommendations on affordable sushi spots to cool coffee stands, flea market selling vintage kimonos to secret open-air sentos to bath in after a long day. A quick hop on the shinkansen bullet train whisks travelers away to polar opposite scenes. Try skiing in Hakuba, or onsen hopping in Hakone. Explore the rich heritage of Kyoto, or stay in a monastery in Mount Koya. Fall in love with Mount Fuji before heading back to the city for late night karaoke. Designed to be practical and useful as well as beautiful, this book is organised into neighborhoods, with maps and original photography to give the reader all the information that they need to plan the perfect trip to Tokyo.
“Anna’s book is a brilliant compendium of everything you go to Bali hoping to find: the lo-fi beach shacks, the smart little restaurants, the shops and the most deserted stretches of sand.” Condé Nast Traveller
“This guide is a slender, eminently packable counterpart to the glut of weighty tourism tomes and is carefully curated so it only shows you the best bits.” —Travel & Leisure
