Monocle travels to the Japanese capital for a comprehensive survey of the best the city has to offer.
If Tokyo’s reputation is that of an imposing, neon-lit, modern city, a visit will reveal a very different side: low-rise, leafy and welcoming. For The Monocle Travel Guide to Tokyo, the Monocle team has canvassed the metropolis for places that highlight this lesser-known side.
A new Studio Ghibli film is always a cause for celebration, particularly when it’s made by co-founder and master animator, Hayao Miyazaki.
His latest film, The Wind Rises, is something of a departure, in that it’s a historical drama with no hint of the fantastical overtones you might associate with him.
The Wind Rises is about aircraft designer Jiro Horikoshi, covering a decade of his life through the Kanto Earthquake and World War Two, and all the turbulence and tragedy that went with it.
The classic Nike Dunk silhouette is reinvented for the modern day girl who is, quite literally, looking for a little lift in her step.

I have to admit, I am super sad that ’25 Nights For Nujabes’ has come to and end.
Night 1 did not seem all that long ago, and yet here we are at the end with Night 25. Ta-ku has created such a beautiful series of songs dedicated to the late Nujabes, that I’m sure both will be remembered for a long time to come.
Ta’Ku’s 25 Nights project is worth of truly inspiring and magical moments.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
