The places

Most of the action in the novels take place in Tokyo, mainly in famous neighborhoods and areas like Roppongi, Ginza, Harajuku, Shibuya, Akasaka, Odaiba, Shinjuku, and Akihabara. Having lived and worked in Shinagawa, Jakob is familiar with the megacity, and readers will find references to many authentic landmarks, although some, of course, are made up.
