Tokyo is a city that evolves with breathtaking pace, thanks largely to a local obsession with renewal and innovation. Spectacular restaurants and bars, with designs from Tokyo's young hotshots, are opening across the city, and the luxury hotel scene is buzzing, with a Mandarin Oriental, Conrad, Ritz Carlton and Peninsula all joining the fray. The wildly popular lifestyle complex Roppongi Hills has new rivals in the form of Ando Tadao's Omotesando Hills and the Midtown Project. Yet in the midst of this consumer frenzy, the traditional Tokyo is also enjoying a renaissance. Zen practices are making a comeback and traditional Japanese design is now all the rage. With foreign interest in Japan showing no signs of waning, Time Out Tokyo is the most reliable commentator on its dazzlingly fast paced, ever-changing capital. *Sightseeing in Tokyo *Tokyo hotels *Tokyo restaurants *Tokyo bars *Tokyo shops *Tokyo maps

Author Information

Founded in 1968, Time Out has grown from humble beginnings into the leading resource for anyone wanting to know what's happening in the world's greatest cities. Alongside our influential weeklies in London, New York, Chicago and Dubai, we publish more than 20 magazines in cities as varied as Beijing and Beirut; a range of travel books, with City Guides now joined by pocket-sized Shortlist series; and an information-packed website. The company remains proudly independent, still owned by Tony Elliott four decades after he launched Time Out London. Written by local experts, and illustrated with original photography, our books also retain their independence. No business has been featured because it has advertised, and all restaurants and bars are visited and reviewed anonymously.
