This adventurous pop-up book whisks kids away on a whirlwind tour of Tokyo's most famous landmarks.
“Tokyo Pop-Up Book” cleverly pairs cultural and geographical information with artful paper engineering and an exciting storyline. Follow Chico, a 13-year-old shutterbug, and his mischievous cat Neko as they travel to the world's largest city. It doesn't take long for things to go off course when Neko decides to do some sightseeing on her own!
As the pair travels the twists and turns of Tokyo, they pass through the city’s sites, each with an action pop-up. They encounter Asakusa Temple, an ancient Buddhist temple where their adventure begins; a Sumo match in progress; Shinjuku Station; Tokyo Skytree tower; and the iconic Mt. Fuji.
