W ith four centuries of history and 13.8 million people, Tokyo can appear overwhelming. In the new Talking Tokyo digital magazine, North American visitors uncover a city of neighbourhoods, each with its own shrines, festivals, shopping areas and cosy restaurants where you can eat well and meet locals without speaking Japanese. In the first edition, Air Canada staff describe their favourite restau- rants, gardens and hot-spring experiences. A fashion entrepreneur takes readers to Harajuku, the youth fashion hub sandwiched between Shinjuku and Shibuya. As the writers discover, Tokyo both surprises and delights visitors in the way the city interweaves the old and the new. canada-tokyo.ca JAPAN COMMUNICATIONS INC C algary-based Swoop Airlines has announced its summer service to five new Canadian cities, two new transborder markets and an extension of two international routes.
