What I enjoy about this book is how it is approached visually. The book features large photos and then a description of each photo of people that Keet and Manabe came in contact. Asking them about their clothing, accessories and pretty much interviewing the people featured. Keet does a great job in her coverage and part of the enjoyment is they go so far in capturing a variety of styles in Tokyo and so, there are literally literally over 200 photos featured. The interviews with the designers and the shopping areas were also great to see.
So, I can' tell you how pleased I am when I read "THE TOKYO LOOK BOOK" by Philomena Keet and photos by Yuri Manabe. Well-written, well-researched and photography to pretty much finely showcase what anyone who goes through Japan can see in terms of fashion trends and various styles.

Keet Seel hikes requires advance reservation and obtaining a backcountry permit at the visitor center. Daily limit is 20 people for this 17-mile round-trip hike on a primitive backcountry trail; elevation loss and regain is 1000 feet. The hike will lead down steep switchback trails and uneven steps, and continue down a sandy slope and once at the bottom, there will be rocks, and expect to hike across ankle-deep stream many times
The books bright pink and black cover is delightful and trendy retro looking. The author Philomena Keet and photographer Yuri Manabe just scoured the streets with camera, tape recorder, and clip board trying to capture a well rounded view of what fashions are on the streets of Tokyo in 2007 at the time they prepared the pages of this book.
