This map was very useful during a trip to Tokyo. I used it everyday which was a big surprise to me as I wondered why I had bought it while in the UK. It seems to me that I lot of thought has done into this map as I found it more convenient that the free tourist maps-which are also excellent. They compliment each other.

The reason I feel that the map is a product of some thought is that it perfectly had all the things I would what to see in the city and did-galleries, museums, temples shrines, location of my Hotel, underground train routes, parks, train stations. The map has easy to use key and more detailed maps of the main tourist areas.

The only reason I don't give it a five is that its out of date and I found one gallery to be in a different location to that on the map.

My planning for the trip really was really close to zero and I could operate as a very effective tourist with this map. Otherwise I would have to use my lonely planet/rough guide to extract information which would involve lots of flicking through to their pages. I first used the map and then the guide. Without the map I would had be cumbersome (slower) in making tourist decisions.

The free tourist maps available are excellent however the are larger, harder exgtract information from, and don't have all the information (all tourist that interest me sites clearly marked) that I used on this map.

This was a great map, which was easy to slip into a bag, could deal with rain, and was very useful for a week's sightseeing round the city. Guidebooks offer small one-page maps of individual districts; without the 'big picture' that this map showed, we'd have been a lot more confused than we were! BTW, don't expect street names in Tokyo; the naming and numbering system doesn't work that way.

These are great on holiday or on business trips. Resilient in all conditions, the waterproof, folding design ensures you'll have a reliable reference at all times. You can even draw on these with non-permanent markers and then be able to clean and re-use them again.

Positives:

Waterproof and small.

Negatives:

Each 'ward' has it's own map section, but the wards are not located next to each other on the map. You get to the end of one ward, and you need to turn the map over, flip it around and even then it's not clear which ward should align with the previous one. You can look on one ward and see an attraction you wish to visit, but then you need to find that ward on the larger map and then try to late the same attraction.

It would have been far easier to keep the great detail of the smaller ward maps, but just align all wards correctly.

I wouldn't recommend, unless you are familiar with Tokyo already.

it does exactly what it ought to...
I wouldn't call it 'laminated', I'd call it 'shiny';
apart from that it's a handy map: folds and unfolds and fits a larger pocket

I bought this map for planning a trip to Tokyo in 2012. It really helped to get an idea of where I was going and I found it to be very accurate.
