This travel guide and coloring book features Tokyo, Japan's famous landmarks and hidden gems, plus a few captivating day trips. Great for travel with kids. Exploring is made easy as the book begins with a map of the city and a two-page index (with Japanese headings) 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.
