Driving into Tokyo from Narita airport can be an overwhelming experience: As your taxi swoops down into the city along a curving highway, you watch as the sprawling skyline stretches beyond the horizon. Clusters of buildings are balanced precariously on every inch of the island’s free space. With each glimpse of a succession of side-streets leading to neighborhoods holding secret pleasures. It becomes apparent to a newcomer to Tokyo that experiencing even a fraction of what you see before you will be near-impossible task.
