Tokyo Totem - A Subjective Guide

PRESENTED ON JUN 24, 2015
IN TOKYO @ VOL 126

"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!

APPLAUD THIS!

"Our mission is to dispel this myth that Tokyo is this crazy expensive place." 

From humble beginnings, tech entrepreneur Chris Kirkland's website, Tokyo Cheapo, a travel and culture guide dedicated to life in Japan on a budget, has grown to a monthly readership over 150,000. From getting to and fro, to staying in rock-bottom-priced accommodation, even to finding love, Tokyo Cheapo covers it all on life in Tokyo on the cheap!

Celebrating Illustrators and Tokyo

BY THE TOKYOITER
@ VOL 138 ON JUL 27, 2016

"We were documenting Tokyo a lot, but even though we might draw Tokyo tower three times, because of our different background and where we come from, there will be three different outcomes which we thought was really interesting."

In Celebrating Illustrators and Tokyo from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 138, David Robert and Andrew Joyce share on The Tokyoiter project. The Tokyoiter is willing to present the talent of artists and the wonderful and inspiring city of Tokyo to a larger audience. Every cover of this imaginary magazine and tribute to The New Yorker and The Parisianner is a celebration of creativity and one of the best city on earth.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, September 2nd, 2016.
