Tokyo 20/20 Vision and FOUR are both part of the ‘Iwakura Series‘. Although Iwakura appears briefly in Hijacking Japan, and there are a few references back to Hijacking Japan in Tokyo 20/20 Vision and FOUR, these books can be enjoyed without having read Hijacking Japan. It doesn’t matter which order you read FOUR and Tokyo 20/20 Vision in and both can be enjoyed as stand-alone books (as can Hijacking Japan).
At the moment I am planning for book three of the Iwakura Series to be set between FOUR and Tokyo 20/20 Vision. A fourth book will be set after Tokyo 20/20 Vision. After that, who knows? With the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics being postponed to 2021 there is now about a 10 year gap between Hijacking Japan and Tokyo 20/20 Vision, so there are possibilities for other stories to be written to help fill the gap along side books 2 and 3 of the series.
