People Make Places

PRESENTED ON DEC 14, 2016
IN TOKYO @ VOL 142

"We managed to dig out all the people's personalities. In doing the interviews we uncovered so many layers of Japanese culture which I didn't expect."

In People Make Places at PechaKucha Night Tokyo. 142, Writer and entrepreneur Charles Spreckley shares stories about the humble geniuses who make Tokyo endlessly explorable: the chef and his restaurant, the designer and her boutique, the barista and his coffee shop, or the art dealer and her gallery. His self-published book about these inspiring characters, 'People Make Places', came out this year.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, February 3rd, 2017.
