A special treat was going to Kunihiro Takahashi publisher / shop / gallery where the owner showed us his process of publishing a book and proved to us that this book printing was indeed better than the fiber based  prints.

A must for any photobook enthusiast is the Library on the top floor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, you can only look at three books at a time but the catalog is amazing, almost any Japanese photobook is in there.
