Map of the Sounds of Tokyo (Spanish: Mapa de los sonidos de Tokio) is a 2009 Spanish drama film directed by Isabel Coixet. The film competed in the main competition at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival.[1]



The film is the story of a young lady working nights at a Tokyo fishmarket while taking on jobs as a hitlady.



The movie has been criticized for misrepresenting Japanese culture – a scene in the movie depicts nyotaimori (the practice of serving sushi on the body of a naked female) as if it were commonplace in Japan, while in reality it is nearly non-existent.[2] However, even in the film, the two Japanese businessmen ridicule the need to "eat hot sushi off a woman's navel" in order to "fit in with the idea that they have of us..."
