I loved this book which for me made perfect bedtime reading, stimulating and calming at the same time. Thirty nine short chapters with the adventures ranging from the ritual inhaling of incense to a night out at the urbane Shanghai Club. If you're going to Tokyo, take this along to see what has changed and for pointers on how to get to the places and activities still there. I found I had at most scratched the surface the three days I was there in the 1980s.

My only beef: conversion of yen prices
a bit outdated, but still an excellent read
