MY TOWN // MARI PRESENTS TOKYO

My Town” is a brand new feature wherein friends and family from around the world give us the lowdown on their home town – favourite bars, restaurants, record shops and more. Forget Time Out – this is the only city guide you need.

 

Next up is Mari, the Tokyo resident ‘It Girl’.
