Tokyo Geek's Guide Book Review

The complete title to the book is Tokyo Geek's Guide: Manga, Anime, Gaming, Cosplay, Toys, Idols & More - The Ultimate Guide to Japan's Otaku Culture. I recently received a copy for review from the publisher, Tuttle Publishing. I've always wanted to visit Tokyo, and while I've technically been there, it was only a stopover in the airport, I don't really count myself as a visitor just yet.

The book itself is a sort of travel guide. It introduces you to Tokyo, the world's largest city, nearly double the size of New York City, which currently sits in second place. Before delving into the different neighborhoods of Tokyo, the book introduces you to the different geeky universes. This is where the subtitle comes into play really... manga, anime, gaming, etc... They're all part of the "otaku" culture there. Otaku is like a geek or a nerd. Where a band might have a groupie who is obsessed with their music, otaku is more someone obsessed with some geeky aspect of Japanese culture.
