Tokyo’s apparent disregard for the presumably trifling matter of town planning can make finding someone’s home a frustrating, and often time consuming, task. Plus, while maps can be a major help, the metropolis’ maze-like streets often make even the most detailed diagram difficult to decipher.
With this in mind then, landmarks are a much more reliable resource, making helpful hints along the lines of, â€œI live below the giant Gorillaâ€,
or, â€œMy gaff is next to Godzillaâ€,
far more efficient.
