Tokyo’s apparent disregard for the presumably trifling matter of town planning can make finding someone’s home a frustrating, and often time consuming, task. Plus, while maps can be a major help, the metropolis’ maze-like streets often make even the most detailed diagram difficult to decipher.
With this in mind then, landmarks are a much more reliable resource, making helpful hints along the lines of, “I live below the giant Gorilla”,
or, “My gaff is next to Godzilla”,
far more efficient.
