TOKYO PREFECTURE

A huge metropolis of uber-modernity, jam-packed trains full of hurried and harried commuters, more shops and restaurants than can ever be visited - what is there to say about Tokyo that hasn’t been written about already? Well, this book aims to introduce a few quieter areas off the beaten track, that even the locals may have overlooked. Crystal clear waters for diving, and relaxing cliff-top hot springs with a spectacular sunset view? Tokyo has that at Oshima Island. Unique biodiversity and tropical wildlife? Ogasawara Island. Day-trip hiking and gorgeous autumn views? Head out to Takao mountain to the west of the city. A restful spot right in the centre? Katsushika. To paraphrase - if you’re tired of Tokyo, you’re tired of life. Transportation links make Tokyo’s size surmountable, and trips criss-crossing the city the norm.
