Hitotoki is a beautifully presented series of ‘Tokyo stories from curious outsiders’. It’s a brilliant concept delivered with strong visuals and emotive content, such as this piece by Joseph Badtke-Berkow on the 52nd Floor of Roppongi Hills; ‘as I gazed out from behind a bank of enormous windows, for the first time in the two years since I had arrived in Tokyo I felt that I had left the jumbled Escheresque city below where outside is inside and geography in the traditional north, south, east, west sense has ceased to exist, replaced by destinations and departure points scattered across a universe of flesh, glass, stone and steel’. Captivating.
