This is a fun, off-beat take on the world's most efficient and bemusing city. It includes all the best-loved highlights plus plenty of hidden treasures, like the artists' hangout Shimo-Kitazawa and Kichijoji (the 'Hidden Alleys'). It has expanded selection of cosy ryokan (traditional Japanese inns). It offers canny tips for saving money in the most expensive city on the planet.
