A stunning and well-curated guidebook to Japan, packed with insider tips for design-minded travelers.
Hello Sandwich Japan is for people who value good aesthetics, good food and rich culture, who will enjoy the craziness of Tokyo's neon playground just as much as the peaceful Buddhist getaway of Mount Koya.
