About

Hello, Goodbye: The Beatles in Tokyo, 1966 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' visit to Japan on this tour. Taken by Japanese photographer Shimpei Asai, these pictures have never before been published outside Japan. The Photography Asai is the only Japanese photographer to have gained access to The Beatles in Tokyo, and his photos have remained unknown to most outside Japan. They offer an intimate portrait of The Beatles in their first trip to the country, capturing their time on and off stage, performing, painting and experimenting with traditional Japanese instruments. Following John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison from their arrival at Haneda aiport, Tokyo, to their departure for the Philippines, Asai captures everything from their hotel rooms to their live performances, all with a spontaneity which offers a glance into the lives of the fab four towards the end of their touring years. The Manuscript Hello, Goodbye: The Beatles in Tokyo, 1966, is introduced with an essay by journalist and author Allan Kozinn, who considers the historical significance of the Beatles' visit, and the turning point they were about to reach with the release of 'Revolver'. The Limited Edition This limited edition is handcrafted and quarter-bound in leather; each book is signed by photographer Shimpei Asai and numbered 1 to 1,966, to commemorate the year of the Beatles' visit to Tokyo. The cover is black buckram, silk-screen printed and gold-foiled with Asai's iconic photo of the Beatles' onstage at the Budokan. 'This is a side of The Beatles, relaxed, comfortable and intrigued by a world that, for them, was new and exotic, that we don't often see. And thanks to Asai, we are virtually in the suite with them.' Allan Kozinn (from his introduction) This book is a valuable acquisition for Beatles fans and collectors and commemorates a turning point in the band's development. A uniquely intimate and spontaneous portrait of the Fab Four, this book will be an enduring piece of Beatles memorabilia.
