Going to Tokyo? Check out this guide

Ebony Bizys is an Australian graphic designer, artist, crafter and zine maker living in Tokyo. Before moving to Tokyo, Bizys worked at VOGUE magazines for 11 years. Now days, Bizys spends her days freelance designing, making zines, learning Japanese, and riding her cute tiffany blue mamachari bike around Tokyo taking photos.

A couple of days ago Ebony launched Hello Sandwich Tokyo Guide for you who (like me) dreaming of going to Tokyo.

The guide includes Ebony’s favourite Tokyo suburbs including Shimokitazawa, Harajuku, Shibuya, Kichijoji, Nakameguro, Daikanyama and Shinjuku.

Hello Sandwich Tokyo Guide is a guide for people who like travelling like a local and visiting hidden places off the beaten track. There are tips on where to rent a bike, the best bike path, the best coffee, the best craft shops, the coolest shops, the cheapest drinks, the most delicious pizza, the best izakaya, the cutest cafes, the best rooftop bar, the coolest hotels (and the cheap and cheerful hotels), the loveliest parks and even details for a girl who rides a courier bike to a local park to sell her hand-baked goods… It’s a list of all of the places I frequent, making it a local insiders guide to Tokyo. Also included in the Hello Sandwich Tokyo Guide are language essentials and travel tips. It’s the bloggers guide to Tokyo and if you’d like to visit the places seen on Hello Sandwich, then this guide is the zine for you.”

    Such an inspirational Designer/Artist is our Ebony. I have admired her Vogue Living work for many years and was really excited when she started her Hello Sandwich blog. She is such a unique individual.
