Japanese culture and its innovative cuisine continues to fascinate foodies and armchair travelers alike. With stunning imagery and high production values, TOKYO NEW WAVE brings readers into the minds of the top chefs who are shaping the future of one of the world’s most dynamic food cities.
This luxe collection is filled with portraits, interviews, and recipes from a young and charismatic generation who are redefining what it means to be a chef in this celebrated food city.

Yet they still remain distinctly Japanese, influenced by a style, tradition, and terroir to which they are inextricably linked.
The juxtaposition of old and new—a calling card of Japanese food and culture— is on full display in TOKYO NEW WAVE, perfectly capturing this moment in Japanese cuisine and bringing it to a savvy global audience.
