Tokyo Like a Local

By the People Who Call It Home

Keen to explore a different side of Tokyo? Like a Local is the book for you.

This isn’t your ordinary travel guide. You won’t find the Tokyo Tower and the Imperial Palace, in these pages, because that’s not where Tokyoites hang out. Instead, you’ll meet the locals in iconic anime shops, modern art galleries, or whilst paddle boring along the scenic Okutama River - and that’s where this book takes you. Turn the pages to discover:

  • The small businesses and community strongholds that add character to this vibrant city, recommended by true locals.
  • 6 themed walking tours dedicated to specific experiences such as vintage shopping and manicured gardens.
  • A beautiful gift book for anyone seeking to explore Tokyo.
  • Helpful ‘what3word’ addresses, so you can pinpoint all the listed sights.

Compiled by two proud locals and revised and updated for 2023, this stylish travel guide is packed with Tokyo’s best experiences and secret spots, handily categorized to suit your mood and needs.

Whether you’re a restless Tokyoite on the hunt for a new hangout, or a visitor keen to discover a side you won’t find in traditional guidebooks, Tokyo Like A Local will give you all the inspiration you need.
