Tokyo ist mit seinen 35 Stadtbezirken und über 9 Millionen Einwohnern heute die größte Metropolregion der Welt. Politiker, Fürsten und Unternehmer, aber auch Reisende, Künstler, Erfinder, Gelehrte, Handwerker und einfache Leute prägten die Stadt im vergangenen Jahrtausend. Ihre Lebensläufe führen die ganze Farbigkeit und Lebendigkeit dieser faszinierenden Metropole vor Augen. Als im 15. Jahrhundert der Kriegsherr Ota Dokan eine kleine Stadtsiedlung neben eine alte Burg und ein Fischerdorf namens Edo setzte, konnte niemand ahnen, dass dieses Edo um 1700 mit einer Million Einwohner die größte Stadt der Welt sein würde. Zu verdanken war das dem Fürsten Tokugawa Ieyasu, der 1590 nach Edo kam und aus dem Provinznest seine Hauptstadt machte, in der 15 Generationen seines Hauses als Shogune regierten.

Donald Richie takes the reader on a revealing tour of the different districts of Japan's capital city. Starting from the original centre of Tokyo – the Imperial Palace – Richie branches outwards, taking in other areas such as Yoshiwara, the original red-light district, and Ginza, the world-famous shipping street. The author has kept a diary for the entire time he has lived in Tokyo, and excerpts from it provide on-the-spot insights into the significance of fashions and fads in Japanese culture (for example the recent Tamagochi craze), as well as the various aspects of life in a small neighborhood. Richie gives a real sense of how Japanese society has changed since the Second World War, yet remained rooted in its past. With the eclectic eye and ear of a film-maker, Richie describes the flavor and idiosyncrasies of this chaotic, teeming city. Tokyo is illustrated with 30 intriguing photographs by Seattle-based photographer, Joel Sackett.

Mit wachem Blick für die sinnlichen Details und einem Ohr für das Echo des Vergangenen durchstreift Stephan Wackwitz eine der faszinierendsten Städte der Welt. Fern davon, Östliches gegen Westliches auszuspielen, verdichten sich seine feinen Beobachtungen zu poetischen Bildern, die die Irritation des Blicks als ein Abenteuer des Verstehens erzählen – ein Flaneur in der Tradition der großen Essayisten der 30er Jahre.

The Tokyo region is the most populous metropolitan area in the world and a place of extraordinary vitality. The political, economic and cultural center of Japan, Tokyo also exerts an enormous international influence. In fact the region has been pivotal to the nation's affairs for centuries. Its sheer size, its concentration of resources and institutions and its long history have produced buildings of many different types from many different eras. This is the first guide to introduce in one volume the architecture of the Tokyo region, encompassing Tokyo proper and adjacent prefectures, in all its remarkable variety. The buildings are presented chronologically and grouped into six periods: the medieval period (1185-1600), the Edo period (1600-1868), the Meiji period (1868-1912), the Taisho and early Showa period (1912-1945), the post-war reconstruction period (1945-1970) and the contemporary period (1970 until today). This comprehensive coverage permits those interested in Japanese architecture or culture to focus on a particular era or to examine buildings within a larger temporal framework. A concise discussion of the history of the region and the architecture of Japan develops a context within which the individual works may be viewed. Over 500 buildings are presented, from 15th-century Buddhist temples to 20th-century cultural buildings, from venerable folkhouses to works by leading contemporary architects of Japan such as Kenzo Tange, Fumihiko Maki, Arata Isozaki, Hiroshi Hara, Toyo Ito and Riken Yamamoto as well as by foreign architects such as Norman Foster, Peter Eisenman and Steven Holl.
