‘Tokyo Artrip’ is a series of bilingual guidebooks about the Japanese capital. Each edition introduces a different theme selected from the perspective of Japanese culture, art, and design. The cover illustration is by the popular Japanese illustrator Noritake.
Japanese green tea (‘nihoncha’) is the focus of this edition, which presents insight from a number of tea experts: architect and tea instructor Akane Yanagimoto, tea sommelier Yoshi Watada, Ippodo Tea’s Marunouchi Store (known as the holy ground for Japanese tea lovers), and Swedish tea instructor Oscar Brekell. The guide takes you to a variety of pleasant and authentic ‘nihoncha’ spots in Tokyo.
