Tokyo Totem - A Subjective Guide

BY EDWIN GARDNER
@ VOL 126 ON JUN 24, 2015

"This entire environment that is [Tokyo] is completely made by man, so we're effectively living in the collective imagination of mankind."

At PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 126, Dutch explorer Edwin Gardner introduces a new type of city guide called "Tokyo Totem" which attempts to look at Tokyo in a more experiential sense. Compiling a purely objective guide of the largest city in the world is simply exercise in futility, hence Gardner's fresh angle. The book is coming together with a long list of collaborators over many visits to Tokyo. Tokyo Totem will be released later this year, so be on the lookout for it and we will keep you updated!
