‘Tokyo Artrip’ is a series of guidebooks about the Japanese capital. Each edition introduces a different theme selected from the perspective of Japanese culture, art, and design. In this edition on shrines and temples, four knowledgeable advisors take you around the city: Tokyo National Museum’s Mai Sarai, architect Katsuya Fukushima, Swedish gardener Tatsumasa Murasame, and the ‘Tokyo Artrip’ editorial team. Its goal is to introduce the world of shrines and temples through a variety of perspectives, from the architecture and garden design, to the Japanese art and Buddhist statues associated with them and the sense of history each shrine and temple holds.
