Tokyo city guide

Tokyo city guide
Tokyo is only recently becoming a city that people want to visit. The Japanese have been known as skeptical towards outsiders (the "gaijin"), to say the least. The entire country was isolated from the world from 1639 to 1853 (they called it "Sakoku") and curiously, this is the period when Japan developed the most. Not only Tokyo (known as Edo back then) underwent a massive growth, but also the most iconic parts of Japanese culture came to existence. The samurai, bonsai trees, tea ceremonies, roads, school, erotica, poetry, sumo, even the kabuki theatre: all that happened because of the Sakoku. Maybe globalization isn't the way to go? Maybe telling the Christians to piss off with their nonsense is the catalyst that the modern civilization needs? Fast forward a couple of years, two World War...
