TRIP TO JAPAN GRAPHIC is the first in a series of bilingual guidebooks that allows readers to explore Japan’s visual culture with the help of art and design professionals. This 150-page, pocket-size book focuses on Tokyo, with design experts like Kenya Hara, Ian Lynam, Kiyonori Muroga, and Sakura Nomiyama sharing the very top art and design spots in the capital of Japan!
Additionally, the cover folds out into a handy map of Tokyo with all of the locations within noted clearly in Japanese and English.
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
・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.
