What is Tokyo Authority?


A response to the misinformation about Tokyo.

A response to poorly-written, SEO-driven content on the city.

A response to the commodification of the World’s Greatest Metropolis. 

Tokyo Authority is about Tokyo and everything that happens in it. That means news, reviews and events: the past, present and future of Japan’s capital. 

But Tokyo Authority is much more than just a travel guide…

Our goal is simple, but expansive: to amplify what makes Tokyo great – the people, food and culture – by providing a forum for knowledge, analysis, and propagation. We aim to authentically and organically capture, document and communicate Tokyo’s urban landscape through the insight and expertise of the people that shape it.

As well its iconic face, we celebrate the eccentricities and secrets of the alternative sides of the city.

We bridge the gap between traveller and resident. We want to shatter barriers, cultivate, motivate and create a global community of Tokyo enthusiasts, redefining what it means to be a Tokyoite. 

All of this is articulated in one phrase… We Are Tokyo

Eclectic and Diverse, Tokyo Authority is created by a dynamic team of contributors connected by their passion for the World’s Greatest Metropolis.
