The second book by Chris Steele-Perkins on Japan, Tokyo Love Hello offers a highly personal response to Tokyo, the city where he met and fell in love with his wife, Miyako Yamada.

Following on from his first book Fuji, a document and social critique of Japan exploring the life around that great mountain, the new work sees Steele-Perkins turn his vision on the country’s capital. Seen through his sharp but sympathetic eyes, Tokyo appears in many guises, calm, manic, comic, surreal, elegant and elusive.
