Murakami’s Tokyo

murakamis-tokyo1-1042x586@2x

Regular visitors to TBTP are probably familiar with my fervent enthusiasm for the writings of Haruki Murakami. This month marked the much anticipated release of the English translation of his latest novel Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. I won’t bore you with a review of the book. Instead, I’d rather direct you to the wonderful, Japan-based blog Randomwire, which celebrated the publication with a personal pilgrimage to sites around Tokyo that have featured in Murakami’s books over the years.
