Tokyo Totem - A Subjective Guide

"This entire environment that is [Tokyo] is completely made by man, so we're effectively living in the collective imagination of mankind."At PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 126, Dutch explorer Edwin Gardner introduces a new type of city guide called "Tokyo Totem" which attempts to look at Tokyo in a more experiential sense.
