The Boulevards Guide to Tokyo
Back toIndex . Tokyo . Tour On to

    The tour was written by Jonathan Vankin. Vankin spent two years as an American expatriate roaming the streets of Tokyo. Actually, he had a real job and everything -- as an editor at the Daily Yomiuri, the English language edition of Japan's largest newspaper, the Yomiuri Shimbun. In the following essay, Vankin looks at Tokyo life, culture and entertainment through Western eyes (without once engaging in Japan-bashing!). You can read more by Vankin in MetroActive's CyberScape department.
