The summer before she turned sixteen, she returned to Tokyo, making a solo journey to get reacquainted with her birthplace. Through illustrations, photos, and musings, Inzer documented her journey in a self-published book.

    This is a book where the author walk through her re-discovery of her homeland, Tokyo.
    I felt that I was actually reading her diary, with drawings, pictures, personal toughts.
    Is a fun and easy read.
    My rating is 3/5.
