Prep for Toyko


Will there ever be a week again that is not a “Design Week” somewhere in the world? It’s definitely not going to be this week, as starting Wednesday the 1st, the Tokyo Design Week kicks off. And because we know our readers are nothing if not people who need to be in-the-know at all times, we thought we’d provide you with a couple of links ahead of time, so you can follow along as the week progresses. Here’s a couple:

* Jean Snow will be covering the whole week, day by day, in his excellent column at The Japan Times.

* Snow also has a great blog, and right here you’ll find a batch of links to additional coverage.

* And last is this fairly thorough rundown from The Daily Yoiuri, about what to keep your eye out for.

If you are planning on attending, keep us in mind, eh? We’d love to hear all about it. And if you’d like to cover any of the goings-ons, we’d extra like to talk.
