In October 2016 the designers of this Riso Booklet spent an intense and exhausting week in Tokyo, were they joined a shared workshop together with students from the Tokyo University of the Arts. This is a visual approach on a city that dazzles with a mighty traditional culture and a yearning for everything new. It is also a reflection on being close and fare away at the same time.
