It gives wonderful information like the Shinjuku Station is the busiest in Japan with over 3 million people passing thru it each and every day. We experienced that when we went to see the Shinjuku Gyoen. There were so many people everywhere and you felt packed like a sardine but it was exciting to be apart of that experience. They actually have people there that will shove people into the train so that they can get as many people on as possible. Its crazy!
Every night we would sit in our room with this book and our train map and plan out what we were doing the next day. With this book and an english train map Japan was at our finger tips! I am actually purchasing the compliments to this book on Tokyo and the street map all made by insight for our return trip in June.
Having the 1st edition, and the later 3rd edition, of this Insight Guide I can say for my use this is the best guide I would want for Japan. Each person needs judge according to personal taste and for the travel they will be doing, but for overall information this is one fine reference guide. Should I ever be blessed enough to return to Japan, one of these up-to-date books will be among many things I'd pack.
