Colorful Cities (Apr 2015)

Price: $14.95


This coloring book and travel guide features Tokyo, Japan's famous landmarks and hidden gems, plus a few captivating day trips. Exploring is made easy as the book begins with a map of the city and a two-page index for each of the illustrated locations featured in the book. Explorers can travel and color from the neon of Shinjuku to the bridges of the Imperial Palace! The locations are whimsically rendered as 30 black and white illustrations, featuring some of Tokyo's most 'explorable' locations — Yanaka Ginza (traditional shopping street), Kendo Dojo (martial art descending from samurai warriors), Senso-ji Temple (Tokyo's oldest temple dating to 645!), Tokyo Tower, trend-setting fashionistas of Harajuku, tofu makers in Togoshi or the crowded walkways of Shibuya to name a few. The pages are printed on one side of high-quality paper to eliminate next image peek through as well as to reduce marker and gel pen bleed. Pages can easily go from book to art display, as each is perforated at the top for seamless removal. This book is designed, illustrated and printed 100% in the USA.
