Think something's off with that lady on the cover? You're right – and the mysteries don't stop there in our summer issue, which will take you underground, high up and down narrow alleyways, into black baths, an industrial fridge and face to face with a genuine humanoid. Yes, the time has come to uncover the hush-hush side of Tokyo, its hideout boozers, oases of greenery, street art, waterfalls and vibrator bars. The Secret City issue, on shelf from July 1, points you in the direction of 50 confidential spots and is your ultimate guide to city sights, eats and experiences known only to the initiated – until now, that is.
We're also bringing you a bonanza of rather less classified but equally exciting news from the restaurant world with a roundup of the five best new openings in town this year, plus the lowdown on why all-night dancing has finally been legalised (!) in Japan, the only guide to Fuji Rock you'll ever need, and a recap of the Tokyo landmarks Godzilla has laid waste to over his 62-year career of destruction.
