I hope you’re in Japan right now, because dinosaurs are invading the Marui Annex in Shinjuku! These delightfully believable photos of the archaic denizens mingling with the good people of Earth (and their pets) will be on display for your infinite enjoyment from June 12 – 23 (2019).
They not only show off Ken Tsuchiya’s delightful photoshop chops, these excellent books are deliver all the facts to kids (and adults):
Here are some previews from the new book:
If you’re in Tokyo and would like to see a bunch of these photos on display, the exhibit is in the first floor event space at Marui Annex in Shinjuku. It’s open from 11:00 – 21:00 and runs from June 12 – 23 (2019). If you spend more than ¥3000 buying the books at the exhibit, you’ll be entered into a drawing for other great original goods. More information about the exhibit (Japanese only) is here and a map is on my website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
Thanks to Spoon & Tamago for alerting me to this excellent exhibit. I highly recommend signing up for their newsletter, which dishes up gems like this on a regular basis!

“A fascinating mix of history and mystery.” —Booklist
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
