4.0 out of 5 stars Does a fine job
Out of the three guide books I bought, this was the one with the best layout - and the most entertaining read. Layout boxes and quick guides are important when you're on the move and need to find something fast.

The suggestions and pictures provided us with many ideas and the how-to-get-to information was quite precise in general.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great guide to Japan
After getting this, I don't think I will purchase another Lonely Planet book again. The recommendations and advice can be informative, but a lot of it such as places to eat Sushi, and reviews of 5 star hotel restaurants instead of local delicacies are not what you want when you really want to explore a city. At times patronizing, a poor read in general. I'll steer clear...

5.0 out of 5 stars Tokyo encounter, 18 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Tokyo (Lonely Planet Encounter Guides) (Paperback)
This was a very useful book to carry around in Tokyo. I like the way it's divided to different areas of the city, each section with an own map. I recommend you have this book and the Tokyo subway-map and you'll be fine :)

If you are going Tokyo then I highly recommend this book! Not only are the tips on finding stuff great, but the map provided is life saver that would of made my trip terrible if I didn't have it!

A MUST!
