Discovering Tokyo's Yamanote Line

Wednesday, April 2, 2008 Posted: 02:15 PM JST

Neil Ducket, who keeps a very interesting blog by the same name, recently embarked on a fun project, both for himself and his readers. Over the course of the next 12 months, he is visiting all the stations on the Yamanote line and describing them on his blog at Tokyo JR Yamanote Line. Kind of a modern version of the old woodblock print series of the city done by the likes of Hiroshige. So far, Neill has visited Akihabara, Ebisu and Gotanda. Go have a look.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
