By Evangeline Neo
Tuttle Publishing - August 13, 2019


An entertaining and visually-captivating guide to one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations

Preorder The Book

This guide to Tokyo is depicted in charming, culturally-relevant and humorous drawings and stories, which are as enjoyable for armchair travelers as they are practically useful for visitors to the city. Step into the world of modern Japanese culture through this amusing and unique travel guide.
In contrast to the typical travel guide, A Manga Lover’s Tokyo Travel Guide is both informative and fun to read. Learn about Japanese culture, sights and travel tips through the lens of increasingly-relevant and globally popular Japanese pop-culture. Discover where to shop for souvenirs in Akihabara and Nakano, go on a tour of famous anime and manga museums like Studio Ghibli and Sanrio Puroland, and experience a cosplay studio, maid and butler café, and a manga drawing class.

In addition to all the otaku sights this city has to offer, famous manga artist and author Evangeline Neo also brings readers to all the must-see Tokyo sites—from Asakusa’s Sensoji Temple to Tokyo Tower and the Meiji Shrine. Neo introduces travelers to sushi train restaurants, hot spring baths and a kimono makeover session—even a day trip to Mt. Fuji. Along the way, she shows you all her favorite places to shop and eat, and gives advice on what to pack, what to buy, how to get around, and even how to speak a few words of survival Japanese.
