Destinations are organized onto maps that focus on different areas of Tokyo, and within each area, they are organized by theme. In this first volume, the editors of IDEA, a design magazine founded in 1953, recommend design museums, galleries, design spots, and stores in Tokyo.

The destinations are divided into eight areas:
・GINZA / MARUNOUCHI
・ROPPONGI
・SHIBUYA / MEGURO
・OMOTESANDO / AOYAMA
・SHINJUKU / YOTSUYA
・KANDA / AKIHABARA
・UENO / NIPPORI

For each destination, we have included recommendations from graphic designers, and design professionals from Japan and abroad. In addition to our list of recommended design galleries and stores where you can discover the latest designs and masterpieces, the book also includes tips on how to enjoy the artwork, exhibition spaces, and museum architecture from a design-oriented perspective.
