Take an exciting manga pop-up journey across Japan with Chico and Neko the Cat

Pick up where Tokyo Pop-Up Book left off, as Chico and his mischievous cat Neko visit Japan's most famous landmarks. The chase is on as naughty Neko slips away yet again--this time becoming a stowaway on a Japanese bullet train

Using his phone to track his runaway cat, Chico follows Neko to some of Japan's most iconic places:
  • Mt. Fuji and the Big Buddha at Kamakura
  • Serene Kinkaku-ji, the Temple of the Golden Pavilion
  • Himeji Castle, an ancient Samurai fortress with its formidable stone ramparts
  • A sushi train restaurant, where an endless parade of fish is truly a cat's dream
  • The Children's Peace Memorial in Hiroshima, where Chico pauses to reflect
  • The famous floating Torii gate at Itsukushima
  • Cat Island (Tashirojima), where Neko finds a few new friends and the adventure comes to a happy conclusion

Educational and entertaining in equal measure, this exciting manga pop-up book will be treasured by readers of all ages.
