Reshaping Tokyo – one webpage at a time


We're rebuilding Tokyo. Care to lend a hand?

As its Collaboration of the Month project for November 2009, the denizens of the free online travel website Wikitravel have embarked on an important endeavour: bringing order to the massive accumulation of district entries and information pages that collectively make up the Tokyo travel guide.

Like Wikipedia, Wikitravel allows anyone to contribute and edit information, so I’d encourage readers to jump in – or, to use site parlance, “plunge forward” – and help make the project a success. Whether it’s the address of a hole-in-the-wall manga shop or a new travel guide for an entire district, any helpful contribution is welcome, no matter how big or small.
