I found this guide to be more useful before I visited Tokyo than when I was actually there. It's very readable and has lots of photographs, and it was my favourite guidebook to look through when I was planning the trip (and definitely the best for images).

When I was in Tokyo, however, I barely looked at this book beyond the odd quick glance in the hotel room. It's only small and it misses out lots of sights. Also, the directions to the various tourist attractions are not clear - it may give you the nearest station but it doesn't tell you which exit to use, which is very important in Tokyo. In fact, I'd say it's next to useless for when you're out and about. The metro map is OK, but I don't think you stand much of a chance of navigating around Tokyo using the other map provided.

I should also mention that I found the accommodation section to be a bit unreliable. Some of the hotels listed as budget or mid-range were very expensive.

On a positive note though, this book did provide details and a web URL of how to book a tour of the imperial palace online in advance. I didn't find this URL in any of my other guidebooks.

I feel bad giving this book a low score - it really is a pretty guidebook and it's fun to look through, but there are much better guidebooks available -- even if they don't have as many pictures as this one.

I recently got back from a trip to Japan and had this book with me every step of the way, I found it very helpful especially the subway maps, I was a bit dubious about navigate Tokyo on my own but using this map and book I found it very easy.

As I am soon to visit Japan for the first time I have been looking through many guidebooks. This one is very readable and informative and is small enough to easily slip into a pocket. Most maps of Tokyo I have seen are confusing - to me at least - but I was impressed with the clarity of the detachable map supplied with this guide.
