In 1964 Tokyo was the most populous city on earth and the world’s media were about to descend to cover the Olympic Games. Three years later James Bond arrived in You Only Live Twice, sealing a popular iconography for Tokyo that barely seems to have changed. Klein’s assessment of the city incorporates every Tokyo cliché but in pushing them to breaking point it soars above them too.
